Managing Director and Owner
Steve has been working with gas/ oil burners and boilers for over 37 years. He was trained initially by his father, then by Nu-Way the burner manufacturers and finally by Saacke the rotary cup burner manufacturers. In 1980 Steve founded Scott Combustion and since its establishment the company has grown into a full building services organisation and is part of the extensive Scott Group of Companies.
Steve now operates as the Managing Director and supervises the general operation of the company, dealing with company policy, expansion and overseas operations.
In 2001 Steve negotiated and managed the purchase of a service and maintenance company based in the South East of England to enhance the operations of Scott Combustion. This was a very successful purchase and has helped the company move into a larger client base, and is now able to offer some services that it did not complete in-house before.
