MEMBER NEWS: Aspect acquires Web Integrations and invests in new Aberdeen HQ

Today, Aspect: The Strategic Communication Experts has completed the acquisition of Web Integrations, a leading digital consultancy with a large portfolio of clients across a range of sectors in Scotland, the UK and internationally.

Established in 2002, and with a proven track record in website design and development, the talented Web Integrations team has built an enviable reputation across the digital communication mix, and we’ve worked together on several successful projects in recent years.

Combining their capability in digital consultancy, digital marketing, website design and development and SEO with Aspect’s expertise in marketing and brand, content creation, media relations, public affairs and stakeholder engagement, enhances our integrated strategic communication consultancy.

Ewan Duthie, formerly Managing Director of Web Integrations, has been appointed Digital Director at Aspect and joins the company’s leadership team alongside Andrew and Yvonne McCallum and Communication Directors, Jenny Adams and Leona Minellas. Aynsley Smith, Senior Designer, Ryan Duncan, Lead Developer, and Stephen Anindo, Developer, have also joined Aspect’s 50-strong team of employees and associates.

At the same time, following three years of significant growth, which has seen our core team grow from five to 22 employees, we have invested in a new headquarters at 42 Carden Place in Aberdeen. Moving to our new HQ is a huge moment for us and brings the Aspect team together in one location for the first time. It creates a space to work with our clients, inspire creativity and ideas, let our culture flourish, and importantly, it provides room for further growth.

AREG is the original energy transition organisation, working on behalf of members to empower the energy supply chain and champion its expertise. Please get in touch if you have any questions or would like to find out more about membership.

AREG has played an important role in the growth of Scotland’s renewable energy sector, engaging the supply chain and developing the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre. However, we are only at the very beginning of the transition that AREG was established to both lead and support so there are still opportunities for companies to get into the constantly evolving renewables supply chain. We look forward to continuing our work together as renewables builds on its place as Scotland’s main source of power, and as we seek to deliver real change in the crucial areas of heat and transport.

Aberdeen & Grampian Chamber of Commerce has worked closely with AREG since its formation. The recent progress in the developments of offshore wind projects by Equinor and Vattenfall are as a result of the work of the group over many years. The north-east is known as the oil and gas capital of Europe. At the Chamber, we believe the region must evolve its position to being recognised as the energy capital. Whilst hydrocarbons will continue to be essential in driving our economy for years to come, the generation of renewable resources will play an increasingly important role in providing cost-effective power, innovative development and economic growth.

The enthusiasm and dedication of the early group that would become AREG was fundamental in us choosing to launch All-Energy in Aberdeen. The first tiny show was held in 2001, and AREG’s Chairman at the time, Jeremy Cresswell, played such an active role that I often describe him in terms such as All-Energy’s ‘midwife’. All-Energy is now the UK’s largest renewable and low carbon energy exhibition and conference in terms of number of attendees, space booked, and number of exhibiting companies. As AREG became firmly established, their presence and support for the event grew spectacularly over the years. We thank them most sincerely for their invaluable input.


Vattenfall has forged a strong working relationship with AREG through the development of the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre. AREG has worked tirelessly on behalf of the North East and it can take enormous credit for the growth of sustainable energy in the region and the path it has cleared for the region to capture further investment.


Aberdeen City and Shire is emerging as a key location for renewables by successfully transferring its world-class oil and gas expertise into the sector and AREG has done much to advance this through a broad range of initiatives. It has acted as a catalyst in driving further investment in the local economy by engaging with companies, Government, public bodies and existing projects and we have been pleased to support their efforts. Scottish Enterprise will continue to engage with AREG as we increase Scotland’s use of renewable energy.
