Dundee based building services company, McGill, signals its continued growth by expanding operations in Glasgow with the opening of a new depot.
Earlier this year, the construction industry was shocked when the former Scotland Top 500 company entered administration with the immediate loss of over 400 jobs. Quickly after, the business was acquired out of administration and the company has continued to rebuild.
After securing multiple contracts for works in the region, McGill have announced the opening of their Glasgow office. CEO Graeme Carling commented: “I am proud to be announcing the opening of our Glasgow depot, it is another significant milestone in the re-building of McGill. Our team have secured significant contracts in and around Glasgow and our new depot will support delivery of this work.”
Carling added: “We have recruited key personnel to operate our Glasgow depot and will continue to employ local talent as we grow operations in the city. Every job we create makes me proud. Before we stepped in and acquired the business from the administrators 440 people lost their job, and it is great seeing the team grow as we create new jobs in the area.”
Since acquiring the business in March of this year, McGill have re-employed a number of former employees as well as appointing a new board and management team to lead the business. In May, the company launched their development company, McGill Homes and announced that they had purchased a former DWP Job Centre building on Dundee’s Waterfront, which would be converted into residential apartments.
