Since inception, the business has flourished and quickly developed expertise in the coating process both blasting and sophisticated coating systems. Together, the in-house facilities and on-site capabilities blossomed through drive and enthusiasm provided by Bonnie and her loyal team, who nurtured their expertise through a series of ever more demanding projects to become the biggest blasting and painting company in Scotland’s central belt. To ensure excellence for clients, all of CCC’s employees are Norsok approved applicators and the business employs two full time Nace 2 Paint Inspectors. The company has ISO 9001 and OHSAS 18001 accreditations and striving towards 14001. Recently, CCC has expanded thanks to a £200,000 investment on a second state of the art blast machine, which is capable of handling much larger fabrications and components. To accommodate this, the firm now operates out of two paint halls with a floor area of 36000sqft in each bay.
