Harrogate-based company, Adler and Allan, leaders in oil and environmental services, has made its debut on the 15th annual Sunday Times BDO Profit Track 100, which will be published this weekend (Sunday 13th April 2014).

Ranked at number 31, Adler and Allan now employs over 450 people, a number which has more than doubled since 2010. With a blue-chip customer base and regulatory-driven demand for its services, Adler and Allan’s positive momentum is continuing and it expects sales in the current year to exceed £50m for the first time in the group’s history.

Adler and Allan’s areas of expertise include emergency response; environmental, mechanical, electrical and civil engineering services, as well as specialist fuel service capabilities; land and marine. The business also offers a range of consultancy services and assists in protecting some of the UK’s key infrastructure assets, including the energy sector, defence and fuel supply.

James Collier, Adler and Allan’s recently appointed Group Finance Director, commented: We are delighted to have secured a place on The Sunday Times BDO Profit Track 100. Our success is underpinned by the ongoing broadening of our offering and through forming strategic, long-term partnerships with our customers in order to deliver an increasingly multidisciplinary range of services across the full life cycle of their assets.

We look forward to a great future delivering an outstanding service to our clients, investing in an exceptional workforce and continued growth in response to the demands created by our changing environment and the needs of industry.

Through 80 years of steady growth and strategic acquisition, the Adler and Allan Group, including E&S and AJ Bayliss, has become one of the UK’s leading suppliers of oil and environmental services, with a nationwide customer base and world-leading capabilities.

Whatever the scale and complexity of the challenge, Adler and Allan delivers a fast and efficient solution demonstrated by its involvement in the clean-up of some of the UK’s most infamous disasters, including Buncefield and the floods of 2007 and 2013. Adler and Allan was an official supplier of fuel for the London 2012 Olympics.
