Over a year on since opening, MGF’s Livingston Depot continues to successfully provide both excavation safety and structural support solutions to those across Scotland.

Ideally located in the central belt, MGF’s depot can support the growing needs of the northern UK construction industry by offering national service to Scotland with the support of the other 13 MGF locations.

MGF Regional Director, Kevin Clarke noted:

“We have been serving Scotland through our North East – Durham depot for 25 years, but I am thrilled that our depot in Scotland is allowing us to improve and strengthen our offering to our Scottish customers on a regional basis.”

Our Technical Sales Representative at Livingston, Craig Anderson has now been joined by Regional Engineer, Lewis Hoggan – amassing an impressive 40 years construction experience between them.

Cairns Gibson, Regional Manager for Scotland and North East England commented: “It’s great to have a strong sales and engineering team in Livingston. We hope that the team continues to do MGF justice in Scotland!”.

Fully stocked with all MGF equipment, Livingston is ready to service your Scottish projects!

Following the completion of the Earls Gate Energy Centre, Construction Sector Manager, Mick Cleary commented on his experience working with MGF:

“There’s a partnership here, everyone has had to work together, and it has been a real team effort. MGF have been on the phone available to me all day every day, it’s been fantastic service.”

February 2021 marks the 40-year anniversary of MGF, providing specialist temporary works solutions to the construction industry, creating safe working environments. We offer a wide range of shoring products from box systems to trench sheets, hydraulic bracing to walers and struts, as well as a lightweight and GRP range and accompanying safety products.
