Clockwork Removals Celebrates its 20th Anniversary

Sep 28, 2016
Clockwork Removals and Storage is celebrating its 20th anniversary this summer.

The company was founded by current Chairman Courtenay Morison in Edinburgh during the summer of 1996 with the intention of building a nationwide customer focussed business with a strong potential for growth. Clockwork now has over 180 employees and a fleet of more than 80 vehicles - achieved through both natural growth and acquisitions - to become one of the UK's largest removals companies, with branches stretching from the Highlands of Scotland to Southern England.    

Courtenay Morison said, “It's been a long road with a lot of ups and downs! The fundamentals are still the same, we look after our customers and employ the best people, but the business has changed beyond recognition over the last two decades. We now have a structure and a strong platform for even more growth within Scotland, throughout the UK and internationally.”   

Human Resources Manager, Alasdair MacInnes, shared his views on employee development and opportunities within the company. “Clockwork Removals’ success has been gained by achieving the highest industry standards and this is largely due to the efforts of our experienced and industry trained workforce. As the business has grown over the last 20 years, we have been able to attract excellent staff from both the removals industry and other market sectors. Many of our staff benefit from training and development activities and also promotion opportunities and this enables them to enhance their career prospects with the company.”  

“We are actively involved in the Modern Apprenticeship Scheme; this provides training and qualifications for young people entering the industry. The aim is to provide long-term and rewarding jobs in our business and, so far, it has been a resounding success for both the company and the apprentices,” said Alasdair.    

Clockwork’s growth in the UK over the past two decades has been impressive and the company is now looking to expand its international offering.
