The Weir Group PLC (Weir) is a FTSE 250 global engineering business headquartered in Glasgow. The company’s global footprint spans more than 50 countries and employs more than 11,500 people. Founded in 1871, Weir engineers solutions that improve safety, efficiency and sustainability – helping to provide the essential resources needed by a growing world. Significant growth and restructuring both operationally and in terms of its geographical footprint, culminating in the agreed sale of the Oil & Gas division, has enabled the Group’s transformation into a focused premium mining technology business through its Weir Minerals and Weir ESCO divisions.
Weir has reported continually strong revenue and profit growth in recent years. In 2020, at the half year point, the Group reported revenue of £1.1bn and profit before tax of £108m. These are highly impressive results, especially during an extended period of general economic uncertainty, with Weir well placed to benefit as markets recover. Weir represents a true global success story headquartered in Scotland.
The Glasgow city centre headquarters comprises some 110 professionals including the Board of Directors and key Group functions – Finance, Tax, Treasury, Internal Audit, Corporate Development, IT, HR, Company Secretarial, Legal, Investor Relations and Sustainability.
