CAN opens new Scottish office

CAN has just announced the opening of a new Scottish office up in Glasgow.

Both CAN companies have worked successfully in Scotland for over 20 years, works include rock face stabilising at Dunoon Sewerage Treatment Works in Argyll and Bute, structural inspection and testing at Burdiehouse Burn nature reserve in Lothian, and slope works at Loch Katrine in the Highlands.

The Scottish office, which opened in Glasgow on Monday 20 May, is CAN’s fourth permanent base supplementing Chesterfield, Northfleet and Portishead.

The expansion comes after CAN was acquired by leading environmental and engineering services company RSK Group Ltd in October last year, one of twelve acquisitions in the 2018/19 financial year.

CAN will be sharing the office space with other RSK group companies. Representing CAN will be Colin Smith, the new Regional Manager for Scotland.

Mark Richardson, CAN Managing Director, said:

“CAN is delighted to expand our footprint in Scotland with the opening of our new office. We believe that this move will provide our clients with the level of support and collaborative working that is so important to the CAN business model. We are very excited by the move and look forward to the new challenges and opportunities this will undoubtedly bring.

“Colin will be building on existing relationships in Scotland whilst also working to introduce CAN to new prospective clients. Colin has 25 years experience in the construction industry and has worked for CAN for the last seven years. His wealth of experience and depth of knowledge is a huge asset to the business and we know that our clients will enjoy working closely with him over the coming years.”
