An environmental technology company has welcomed Lord Digby Jones, chairman of the International Advisory Board of HSBC to their Gourdon facility.

Oil Technics won the HSBC Business Thinking 2010 regional final for Scotland and Northern Ireland and were one of only 18 companies from across the UK to compete at the finals in Hong Kong in December 2010.

Lord Jones was one of the judging panel in Hong Kong and was impressed with the presentation Oil Technics delivered. In his capacity as chairman of the International Advisory Board of HSBC, Lord Jones made a follow-up visit to the company’s facility.

During the visit he said: “What a wonderful British business. Innovative, world-class and exactly where UK business should be in a globalized economy.

“By creating sustainable and quality jobs in Scotland, Oil Technics has proved that you can win in a race for the best by investment, training and product development.”

General Manager and owner of Oil Technics, David Evans, who met Lord Jones at the Hong Kong finals, said: “Oil Technics prides itself on its unique product range and thinking style and to have this recognised by the HSBC initiative was a wonderful achievement.

“Being part of the HSBC Business Thinking competition has been a fantastic opportunity for the company as a whole. It has given us the chance to network with a variety of companies from across the world and also with leading HSBC executives.

“We were delighted to welcome Lord Jones to our facility and were grateful for the opportunity to be able to talk with him in more detail about our future business plans.”

The company is in the process of launching a new innovative range of hospital disinfection products which use its patent-pending water-based technology. The range is designed to help stop the spread of hospital acquired infections.

Oil Technics Holdings Ltd is an environmental technology company with three manufacturing divisions – oil degreasing, spill response and bio remediation chemicals; environmentally safe fire fighting foams and biological cleaning and medical disinfection products.
