Blargoans Ltd was founded by Jim Nicolson and his son Martin in 2009. Jim was owner and MD of Nicolson Engineering Services Ltd for 28 years, working in the Nuclear and Oil & Gas Industry providing Engineering Fabrications, Technical Support, and Installation Expertise as well as the supply of Personnel to both Industries prior to the sale of the company in 2008.
With his vast knowledge of the Nuclear, Oil & Gas Industries, and seeing a gap in the market in the North of Scotland for Industrial Supplies, Plant and Equipment, Blargoans Ltd was opened continuing to supply the much needed qualified Personnel. Using contacts made through years of purchasing, the customer is supplied with what they need at a very competitive rate. They achieve this by providing their customers with knowledge built up over many years backed up by a passion for service and the will to source good quality products, always at a fair price.
Martin Nicolson teamed up with his Dad on a daily basis again in 2010, taking over the reins in early 2011. With his background as a time served Mechanical Technician, serving his trade on the Dounreay Nuclear Site with UKAEA and continuing as a tradesman until 1992 before joining the Family Engineering Company, Martin, like his Dad, has gained vast experience and understanding of the equipment needed by tradesmen to complete their daily tasks being on the cold face for so many years. He knows that Quality rather than cheaper inferior tooling is the way to go.
Blargoans will continue to strive to get better in order to be different from the multi-nationals offering a personal touch with face to face technical support and, with this plan, they are positive their customers will keep coming back. Blargoans trading philosophy is simple and effective; they are committed to customer care and prompt delivery. They offer a comprehensive range of products and services at competitive prices.
Blargoans prides itself in providing a quality, cost-effective, value added service and hold ISO9001:2015 international standard of quality, everything we sell is manufactured for the UK and carries CE approvals where required.
