Archaeology firm reports growth in the industry with expansion into Scotland

27 February 2012

Archaeology firm reports growth in the industry with expansion into ScotlandRubicon Heritage Services, an archaeology firm which has recently announced its expansion into Scotland, has reported a growth in the archaeology industry.

Colm Moloney, Managing Director at Rubicon Heritage Services, has announced the company's expansion into Scotland, to coincide with a growth in the archaeology industry. The company, which has worked on projects such as conducting geophysics in advance of the New Forth Replacement Crossing, and work on St. Ninian’s United Free Church and Logie Old Kirk Church in Stirling, is looking to undertake new projects with its team of staff who have long experience in the Scottish Market.

Colm Moloney said: 'These are very exciting times for Rubicon. We are beginning to see real growth again in our industry, with a significant increase in demand for archaeological services in the domestic market over the last few months. We are one of the largest archaeological firms in Europe, supplying services to the UK, Ireland and further afield; with offices in Scotland, England and Ireland. Our new independent status allows us to move into the UK market for the first time in our trading history, so we are determined to grab this opportunity and really grow again.'

Many of Rubicon’s staff are Scottish, and the expansion is a particular source of pride to Director Ross MacLeod, a native Glaswegian and graduate of the University of Glasgow. He said: 'Due to our previous involvement in the UK within the Headland Group, forging strong relationships over a decade, we are well positioned to break into the UK market and we are committed to making this happen within the next twelve months. This will mean big things for us, big things for archaeology in this country.'
