Sureclean makes a come back

At the beginning of the year Chief Executive, Simon Gibb, and Managing Director, Mark Kelly acquired the long-serving energy industry cleaning company NRC UK and made the decision to rebrand the firm back to its original name, Sureclean.

Sureclean, generation two, currently employs 30 people and will begin an immediate hiring campaign to double its headcount within the first year.

Mark, who was formerly vice-president of international operations for NRC, said the reformation of Sureclean was a “pivotal move” in establishing the organisation as the UK’s leading environmental, industrial, and emergency oil spill response contractor.

With our headquarters in Alness on the Cromarty Firth until 2020, was originally launched in 1995. We became NRC UK when it was sold to US Ecology in 2014, employing 135 people at the time of the deal.

Sureclean carries out industrial cleaning for the oil and gas, petrochemical, renewable energy, utility, civil engineering, and construction sectors.

Mark said: “Today is the beginning of a new direction and phase for the business and team.

“We have both short and long-term growth plans that range from immediate carry-over of NRC activities to longer-term investment into clean energy innovations.”

Mark has become managing director while Simon, who has more than 30 years’ experience in the environmental services sector including his role as managing director of Augean North Sea Services, joins the board as executive chairman.

Simon said: “Between us, we have more than 60 years’ of combined management experience in environmental best practices to ensure we are ready to help protect the planet with any industrial cleaning project or hazardous spill emergency.

“Our rebrand to Sureclean will combine existing synergies across our teams, service provision and specialisms which will ultimately ensure we have the platform to advance environmental and social sustainability.”
