The UK Government is helping Scotland’s ‘world class’ supply chain companies make the most of global opportunities, the Secretary of State for Scotland Michael Moore said today as he visited Premier Hytemp with local MP Mike Crockart.

Headquartered in Edinburgh, Premier Hytemp is an international supply chain company providing services for amongst others the oil and gas sector. In addition to their offices in Aberdeen, Sheffield, Singapore and Canada, they have in recent years been involved in major projects in Angola, Brazil and the Gulf of Mexico

The Secretary of State said:

‘I was very pleased to visit Premier Hytemp in Edinburgh today and see the essential contribution they are making to a variety of key engineering sectors not just in Scotland but across the world.

‘During my recent visit to Brazil I promoted the excellence Scotland’s Oil and Gas sector has to offer throughout the supply chain. Scottish companies are at the cutting edge of world technology when it comes to the oil and gas sector.

‘Premier Hytemp is one such company and they are already making inroads in Brazil’s Oil and Gas sector. The UK Government is firmly committed to promoting our industries at home and using our global influence to help companies such as Premier Hytemp exploit these exciting new opportunities. The recently launched Oil and Gas strategy underlines the Government’s commitment’
