Pipe­line com­pany cel­e­brat­ing 40 years of suc­cess

Evening Express (City Final) - - Uk & Abroad -

A NORTH-EAST pipe­line com­pany is cel­e­brat­ing 40 years of suc­cess.

And John Bell Pipe­line (JBP) is now look­ing to the fu­ture with am­bi­tious plans for growth.

The oil and gas in­dus­try sup­plier wants to ex­pand work sites and is plan­ning to in­crease its work­force in the new year.

Part of the international Bianco Group, John Bell Pipe­line op­er­ates from sites in In­verurie and Grange­mouth. It op­er­ates in the North Sea as well as Al­ge­ria, Azer­bai­jan and the Mid­dle East.

The firm said that in the midst of “the hard­est in­dus­try re­ces­sion ever” due to a pro­longed low oil price, the com­pany man­aged to win more than £6 mil­lion of work since the start of the year. These con­tracts cover John Bell Pipe­line’s full range of core prod­ucts in­clud­ing valves, pipe and associated prod­ucts, bring­ing in a turnover of more than £12m.

To mark the an­niver­sary, JBP hosted a party at its site in In­verurie for em­ploy­ees, fam­i­lies, cus­tomers and the lo­cal sup­pli­ers with whom they have worked dur­ing the last 40 years.
