About Us

About John Lawrie Group

Metals, Tubulars & Decom.

We have grown significantly since we started trading in the 1930s, diversifying our business to become one of Scotland’s leading privately-owned businesses, with an annual turnover of c£100 million (approx. US$160 million) and employing a team of more than 90 across the globe.

We have three core divisions which provide key services to the oil and gas, construction and utility sectors:

John Lawrie Metals remains the largest metal recycler and exporter of processed scrap metal in north and north-east Scotland, with SEPA-licensed waste treatment facilities in Aberdeen, Montrose, Evanton near Invergordon, and Lerwick on Shetland, and handles over 200,000 tonnes of metal each year.

John Lawrie Tubulars is a leading specialist in the trading of new and reusable tubulars, casing and drillpipe, and operates around the world, with activities throughout the UK, Europe, Scandinavia, North America, China and the Middle East.

John Lawrie Decom has been providing decommissioning services to the oil and gas sector for over 20 years, during which time we have successfully carried out a number of projects involving the processing of redundant equipment and the dismantling of large oilfield and industrial structures.

Despite our growth, we remain committed to providing the very best service and solutions to our customers and clients.
