Able UK

ABLE is the market leader in the fields of demolition and marine decommissioning and is developing significant strategic land and marine sites across the UK, including Europe's largest new super-port (AMEP) at ABLE Humber Port.

It is an entrepreneurial, well-resourced and decisive business that always takes a long-term view which is one reason why its customers keep coming back.

From being a leading and innovative specialist in complex demolition processes, Able has evolved into a multi-functional business providing solutions for some of the world’s largest organisations. This has allowed the business to establish the enviable position of ‘market leader’ in a number of sectors including decommissioning and as a provider of multi-user port facilities.

Able operates a number of strategic sites, predominantly across the North of England, undertaking full site reclamation and associated property development. Its land holding of over 1,600 hectares (4,000 acres) consists of five river frontage sites on the River Tees and two on the Humber Estuary where it provide ports and logistics services.

Executive Chairman Peter Stephenson says: “Our customers appreciate our strong values of hard work, common sense and discipline, particularly in relation to maintaining a proud health and safety record. This, combined with a true passion for innovation and excellent project management capabilities, allows us to maintain our social performance commitment of maximising environmental efficiencies to obtain full economic potential.”

In our business it’s people that make the difference. When we find a good person – a person like Ian, who knows his stuff and provides a good professional knowledgeable service, then we want to employ them to support us developing our business.
