We are confident this step will enable us to continue to offer our existing clients the exacting service they expect, while providing the opportunity to offer our expertise to new industries and projects.”

“Having worked with Bonnie and her team for numerous years, we have experienced first-hand her drive for delivering high-quality service,” adds Gary Mitchelson, managing director of Malin Newbuild. I am confident that this joining of Malin Group and Clyde Corrosion Control will work to cement what is already a positive, mutually beneficial relationship.”

“It will also provide opportunity for future growth in the organization, which both parties and the wider sector will benefit from as we move forward together,” Mitchelson concludes. “We believe that we can lead the way in innovative thinking and show what an exciting future the marine sector offers, both nationally and locally. This ties into the vision we have for the Scottish Marine Technology Park, in which Clyde Corrosion Control capabilities will form a key part.”
