Established in 1870, Andrew Scott Ltd is one of Wales’s oldest independent construction companies. We are a respected name in the civil engineering and construction markets to both public and private sector customers. Founded in Scotland during the latter half of the nineteenth century, Andrew Scott Ltd was originally located in Rutherglen, near Glasgow, prior to expansion into South Wales.
The company was located at the Dockside at Port Talbot, where work was carried out for the original Port Talbot Steel Company. During the early twentieth century, Andrew Scott expanded its civil engineering operations throughout Wales and diversified into new industries. In 1946 the company became incorporated, remaining primarily a civil engineering contractor, it also successfully undertook a number of prestigious projects within the commercial, industrial and sporting sectors.
