TWMA shortlisted in two categories for Northern Star Business Awards


TWMA, a leading provider of environmental solutions, has been announced as a finalist in two categories at this year’s Northern Star Business Awards.

The awards are run by Aberdeen & Grampian Chamber of Commerce and recognise organisations in the north-east of Scotland which have achieved exceptional accomplishments.

TWMA has been shortlisted in the Commitment to Innovative Use of Research & Development category in recognition of its ongoing investment in research and development. Whilst the entire team ensures innovation is at the front of mind every day, approximately 10% of TWMA’s staff are focused on R&D activity to fulfil the needs of clients and the wider industry.

In the last 12 months, a number of international projects have showcased how TWMA innovates to address its clients’ most challenging issues. This includes developing effective offshore solutions for cuttings processing, slops processing and waste handling, and providing an integrated service approach to deliver operational and cost efficiencies, whilst reducing risks.

The second shortlisting comes in the Excellence in Health & Safety category. Ensuring employee and client safety is an integral part of TWMA’s business, and since its inception in 2000, the company has introduced numerous initiatives and training schemes to support this culture both internally and externally. Importantly, this has resulted in TWMA’s recordable injury rate reducing year on year.

Ronnie Garrick, CEO at TWMA, said: “The core elements of TWMA’s success are our proactive approach to innovation, our commitment to health and safety and most of all, our continued commitment to our people who ensure we deliver the highest level of service across all elements of our business. We are absolutely delighted to be shortlisted in categories which acknowledge our efforts in these areas.

“The last 12 months have seen TWMA continue to expand operations on an international level, however as a company which is deeply rooted in the north-east of Scotland, we are very proud to be recognised as one of the region’s success stories.

“Our team is looking forward to the awards ceremony later this year, and continued global growth in the future.”

The Northern Star Business Awards ceremony takes place at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre on Thursday 5 October, 2017.
