Binn Group and chairman John MacGregor have been selected for Perth and Kinross Council’s recently launched Invest In Perth Ambassadors programme which aims to promote the area as the perfect place to locate your business.
Chairman John MacGregor, Ambassador for Invest In Perth, explained how their central location in Perthshire had enabled the growing company to become a national player. “We operate from a 60+ acre complex at Binn Farm near Glenfarg, Perthshire,” he said, “so the family-run business is in a prime location to access, process and recycle waste materials from all areas of the country. With motorway access close by, the site is only 35 miles from the centre of Stirling, 40 miles from Edinburgh, 60 miles from Glasgow and 85 miles from Aberdeen. Both port and rail freight facilities are available within 10 miles of the complex making it ideal for all our operations.
“Having grown from a family farming business to an industry leader with a national footprint, we know how important location can be,” he added. “Perth is the ideal centre to establish and develop all types of business – both those operating across a national network and those looking for a vibrant, supportive and local client base.
“I’m delighted to be an Ambassador for the Invest In Perth programme and to help promote this area as the perfect place to do business,” said John. “We have a wealth of successful companies boasting a Perthshire postcode – both long-established and more recent arrivals. All realise that the area offers the best in transport links, business support and exciting opportunities.”
