“More than 50 years ago, I started a small joinery business in Elgin in the North East of Scotland. As the years moved on, I wanted to create a multitrades business that would service the area around my home town. Now, with a comprehensive range of business units, more than 2,600 employees, and offices from Inverness to Sheffield – you can safely say we have succeeded in this… and then some. The geography we cover is much wider than I could ever have imagined when I set up the business aged 21. This is a fantastic achievement that wouldn’t have been possible without our loyal employees new and old, and our excellent relationships with clients”
