Top Track 250

More than 200,000 tons of scrap metal are recycled at this group’s facilities in northeast Scotland every year, which implemented additional safety measures to reopen in April, having shut the previous month. It also runs decommissioning and tubular divisions, and holds a stock of roughly 100,000 tons of steel tubes at bases in Scotland and Texas, which it sells to customers in the civil engineering and construction sectors worldwide. Founded in 1930, it is now led by chief executive Vic Sinclair, 53, who grew sales to £108.6m in 2018.
