    This year has seen Alpheus enter its’ 20th year of managing one of Europe’s largest pharmaceutical penicillin processing plants in Scotland, as well as winning the ‘Best Anaerobic Digestion (AD)/Biogas Support’ category at the ADBA ‘AD & Biogas Industry Awards’ for our Operations and Management (O&M) work at Glenmorangie distillery in Tain, Scotland – a contract we only began in January. In addition, this year we’re celebrating achieving a 100% retention level with client contracts over the past 5 years.
    And it’s our commitment to achieving operational excellence that is, we believe, driving our success.
