Jim Milne of Balmoral Group receives knighthood

06 Jun 2022

Jim Milne, chairman and managing director of Balmoral Group, now officially Sir James S Milne CBE, DL, DHC, Hon DBA, Hon FRIAS, was awarded the honour of Knight Bachelor in the Queen’s Birthday 2022 Honours List for services to business and charity.

Following the acceptance of his knighthood, he said: “I am deeply honoured and quite taken aback to have received such humbling recognition from Her Majesty The Queen in this very special year for her.”

Sir James is often quoted as saying that he hasn’t come a long way in life as his company’s corporate headquarters are located less than a mile from where he was born and brought up on the family farm, just outside Aberdeen city at that time.

Nowadays, Balmoral Group operates from a 45 acre site in Aberdeen and has engineering and manufacturing facilities in Newcastle, South Yorkshire and South Wales, all run by dedicated and committed individuals which he feels is so important.

“I’m a great believer in people. If you have good people, look after them; I can certainly say we have an abundance of good people at Balmoral that have supported me and the company exceptionally well.

“85% of what we produce in the UK is exported worldwide. From our offshore energy products for the hydrocarbon and renewable sectors, to our anaerobic digestion and water/wastewater products, you will find Balmoral products on every continent in the world.

“Quality products supported by a problem solving approach and a commitment to world class service is a powerful and profitable mix.”
