FIFE: The Scott Group has launched its rebranded Group of companies which, under the Group banner, includes six divisions: Scott Pallets, Scott Packaging, Scott ELM, Scott Direct, Scott Property and Agricultural Boxes.



The group has grown considerably over the past 20 years through numerous strategic acquisitions and organic growth across the UK and in to Europe to become the UK’s market leading and largest pallet supplier, the fastest growing packaging provider and a leading supplier of essential trade supplies such as tools, work wear and corporate clothing. Most recently the group launched a commercial insurance service under the Scott Direct brand.


Norman Scott, group operations director, said: “We’re delighted to unveil our new branding which is designed to ensure the market has a clear understanding of the diversity of our business and all the products and services that we can offer.


“We are confident that our new branding reinforces our commitment to provide a secure, market-leading service to customers throughout the UK and in Europe.”


Since 1998, the Scott Group has acquired 32 businesses, so the branding has been designed to consolidate the entire Group, with all pallet companies including Birchmead, Marlaw Pallet Services and Crofton Pallets coming under the Scott Pallets banner.

All packaging business including Tripack, George Hill and Henry Sutcliffe come under the Scott Packaging banner while pallet repair and repatriation services including the ground-breaking reverse logistics specialist European Logistics Management (ELM) come under the Scott ELM banner.

There is a name change for industrial supplies business Fasco to Scott Direct, the newly created Scott Property brand for the Group’s commercial property portfolio which includes Springkerse Industrial Estate in Stirling and the United Box brand as a separate entity for the Group’s Agricultural Boxes division, a joint venture with James Jones & Sons Ltd and private investors.
