Scottish Minister for Energy, Enterprise and Tourism, Fergus Ewing MSP, paid a visit to John Bell Pipeline at its Thainstone base recently.

Following introductions, Mark then gave Mr Ewing a tour of the premises along with their new fabrication facility which is currently under construction. Mark commented: “I was pleased to show Mr Ewing around our premises.

“It was very gratifying to be able to demonstrate the success of John Bell Pipeline and also to explain about our diversification of products and markets which we believe has been a key factor in our growth.”
