Things have come a long way since I first visited Scott Timber in 2004! (Click here for a trip down memory lane.)

Founded in Scotland in July 1987 at a sawmill in Gargunnock, Stirlingshire, congratulations are in order to the Scott Group as it celebrates its 30th anniversary this summer. It will be marking the occasion with a number of special activities over the coming months.

The company’s 30th anniversary celebration will  see it focus on its staff, customers and the environment and communities in which it operates through a range of initiatives:
– Recognize and reward 30 Rising Stars amongst its 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

“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,” stated Norman Scott, Group Operations Director

Scott Group is also asking its customers to join the celebrations. Here’s what some of them had 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.”
Simon Bowles, Warehouse Manager, Zodiac Seats UK

“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 a great asset to Shetland.”
Andrew Kemp, Stores Controller, Ness Engineering

Scott Group has grown considerably over the past 30 years through organic growth and more than 30 acquisitions across a range of sectors in the UK and into Europe. It has become the UK’s market leading and largest pallet supplier, and a leading supplier of bespoke packaging and essential trade supplies such as tools and branded work wear through Scott Direct. The company also operates a portfolio of commercial property throughout the UK. It employs over 1,000 people across 26 sites.
