Accord Energy Solutions, which was launched in 2010 as the first employee owned start-up business in Scotland, is gearing towards a record £6million turnover in its tenth year.

The business, specializing in oil & gas measurement and hydrocarbon accounting has seen a solid 5-6% growth year on year and recently invested a six-figure sum to purchase a new 3308sq ft HQ in the city’s Carden Place.
