BioMarsh Environmental has expanded into Scotland after securing a £2m funding facility from Bank of Scotland.
The funding will allow BioMarsh, established in 1972, to add 10 drivers to its five-man team in Scotland.
This will give the firm the increased reach required to tender for more business north of the border, after initially entering the Scottish market in June 2016.
The family-run, Essex-based business provides liquid waste disposal, sewer clearing and drainage surveys to both domestic and commercial clients in Scotland and across the UK.
Martin Travers, director at BioMarsh Environmental, said: “The investment we’ve made in our fleet is going help us create more jobs for local people and perfectly positions us to capitalise on the exciting commercial opportunities we’ve identified in Scotland.
“As a business we’re committed to the latest technology, and our new vehicles will also ensure our operation remains sustainable and environmentally-friendly.”
