A brief history:
Omega Asbestos Consulting Ltd was established in June 2010 by our Managing Director, Gary McKendrick and then fellow Director, Richard Clarke.
After having spent 16 years with two previous consultancies, Gary’s desire for industry change was formed. A desire to make an impact and create a legacy, to build a brand, a team of people delivery the results needed to make a difference and set the bar so much higher, to be world leaders.
The business was initially based in Northallerton, North Yorkshire until early 2015 when we re-located our head office to larger premises in Durham. In 2015, we branched into Scotland and also started to build our regional presence throughout the UK.
In 2015, Steve Hubery became a shareholding Director, a fine reward for a key man in our growth and results.
2015 also saw a pivotal growth period and we served national clients and grew from a team of 10 to 20 people.
More recently, in March 2019, Craig Johnston became a shareholding Director as Operations Director.
With our new Board of Directors in Gary. Steve and Craig, we continue to make a difference; our people, our brand, our results, our experience is leading the way forward and attracting more people and clients who share our vision.
