Case Study - Scot Heating Company

Many households and organisations are examining their heating and energy costs – particularly as winter approaches, but, a Stirling-based business is fast earning a reputation for delivering some hot alternatives which deliver much more than just cost efficiency.


Scot Heating Company, a specialist in the supply of biomass heating systems and the provision of high-quality, sustainable biomass wood fuel for heating, has been delivering carbon-saving solutions to its customers for the past three years.

Already working with NHS Dumfries and Galloway to supply biomass wood pellets to its eight hospitals, the business has recently secured a contract with The State Hospital Carstairs to supply sufficient biomass wood chips to fire the organisation’s biomass heating system for a three-year period.

The Carstairs contract is the first win for Scot Heating through the PCS service and the business is confident with the growing interest of biomass solutions within the public sector – it will be able to offer high-quality biomass systems and fuel to others.

With a current turnover of £1,750,000 per year and growing, and working with a range of private sector customers in the agricultural sector, golf courses, industrial estates and office blocks – there is an aim to grow the percentage of public sector contracts as government schemes make biomass heating systems more attractive for users.

Euan Marjoribanks, Projects Manager said: “Scot Heating has quickly earned a reputation for delivering flexible solutions for its customers. It has the expertise to supply, fit and maintain biomass heating systems as well as provide the necessary biomass fuel – and customers like that we can offer that one-stop-shop service.

 “As specialists in the industry, we can offer the public sector a flexible offer which delivers relevant carbon-saving targets with a package to suit the organisations individual needs which allows a number of payment options.

Malcolm Snowie, Managing Director added: 

“PCS is essential for the business – Scot Heating is on a biomass heating framework and it is essential that we keep up to date with any potential opportunities. The more we deal with the public sector, the more the business will grow and build a strong reputation for delivering expertise and high-quality service in a fast-growing industry.”
