Aberdein Considine's Corporate and Business Advisory team provides ongoing legal support to Aberdeenshire-based engineering firm Brimmond Group.
Brimmond designs, manufactures, rents and services a range of hydraulic, mechanical and electrical equipment including power units, marine cranes and pump units.
The Kintore firm's turnover is on the rise as it continues its diversification into new business sectors and also expands its rental fleet. The venture achieved turnover of more than £5million in the financial year to March 2021 - up 6% on the previous 12 months.
Engineering director Tom Murdoch said: “This success is testament to the in-house skills at Brimmond Group, as well as our hard-earned global reputation for pushing boundaries and developing engineering solutions tailored to meet our customers' needs - no matter the brief.
"The business has managed to increase turnover and remain profitable despite an extremely-challenging year due to Covid-19. Our success can be attributed to the adaptability and commitment of the team."
Aberdein Considine, led by Partner Ritchie Whyte, regularly supports Brimmond with contract reviews, as well as a general advisory service. Mr Murdoch describes the support as like having his own in-house legal team.
The company currently has a workforce of 25, who have worked on many specialist projects around the world. The team has been involved in developments in more than 20 countries in the last five years alone.
The company, which was founded in 1996, currently has a rental fleet of around 100 pieces of various equipment – ranging in size from a huge crane to a small pump.
Revenues for the rental division increased by 47% during the first quarter of 2021, compared to the same period of 2020, with more than 20% of these revenues coming from global projects.
