Founded in Scotland in July 1987 at a sawmill in Gargunnock, Stirlingshire, Scott Group celebrates its 30th anniversary this summer and will be marking the occasion with a number of special activities over the coming months.
Launching today, our 30th anniversary celebration will, through a range of initiatives, see us focussing on our staff, our customers and the environment and communities we operate in:
– Recognise and reward 30 Rising Stars amongst our staff
– Initiate a tree planting project in partnership with Outward Bound Trust at Loch Eil
– Host an inter-site competition to manufacture a special item that commemorates our anniversary
– Raise money for charity through participation in The Big Fun Run https://www.bigfunrun.com/
Norman Scott, Group Operations Director, said: “We are immensely grateful to all of our staff, customers, suppliers and partners who have made the past 30 years possible, and look forward to what the next 30 years will bring.”
We are also asking our customers to join the celebrations. Here’s what some have to say:
“Scott Pallets has been an excellent supplier to Peacock Salt over many years and that is vitally important to us as nearly one million bags of salt are delivered on their pallets each year. Wherever we need pallets in the UK, a supply source is near at hand with the product we require. Congratulations on your 30 year anniversary!”
Billy McKelvie, Operation Manager, Peacock Salt
“Congratulations to Scott Group on 30 years in business. We have worked with you for the past 16 years and you continue to do a great job in providing bespoke packaging solutions for our specialist products.”

“After reading about your upcoming 30th anniversary, I would like to express how very well we are served in Shetland by Alex and the gang. Scott Direct is great asset to Shetland.”
Andrew Kemp, Stores Controller, Ness Engineering
