International scrap metal firm appoints Lancashire accountants

Tom Martin & Co, which trades scrap metals around the world, has enlisted the services of the Beever and Struthers office in Blackburn.

The Bamber Bridge-based firm handles more than 50,000 tonnes of non-ferrous metals a year on behalf of clients across a range of manufacturing sectors.

Employing a multi-lingual team of 80 from its base at Walton Summit, the company also has operations at a number of facilities across the length and breadth of the UK, Europe and the Far East.

And it is the accountant's international links that brought the two together, as Beever and Struthers is a member of HLB International, a global network of about 700 well-established accountancy firms with some 25,000 staff in 150 countries.

Chris Lowe, a director of Tom Martin & Co, said: “The local and international presence and ambitions of Tom Martin & Co and Beever and Struthers made us a perfect fit. While we’re proud to be a Lancashire-based business with local clients, our multi-national customers allow us to also take advantage of our global outlook.”

Iain Round, partner at Beever and Struthers is delivering the tax and audit services for Tom Martin & Co, and said: “Thanks to our Blackburn office and membership of HLB International, we share the local and global characteristics of Tom Martin & Co and look forward to helping them achieve their corporate goals at home and overseas.”
