For two years, MGF’s Livingston depot has been providing excavation safety solutions to customers across Scotland.
Ideally located in the central belt, MGF’s depot is able to 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 and 40 years experience.
Cairns Gibson, Regional Manager for Scotland and North East England commented: “It’s great to now have a sales team in Livingston, supported by our Regional Engineer. We have been servicing the country for nearly two years now to great success and we hope that the team continues to do MGF justice in Scotland.”
Billy McCormick, Lead Engineer
Amassing over 21 years in the civil engineering industry, qualifying with a BSc (Hons), Billy has spent two years working on site with a contractor and 19 years in the temporary works industry. Always showing passion for good customer service, relationship building and presenting customers with safe efficient designs in a timely manner.
Billy comments: “It’s exciting to be part of something new and a great chance to contribute to the growing success of the business in Scotland. I’m looking forward to working with the current team and building a strong local design team to offer MGF’s excellent service and reputation to new clients in Scotland.”
With 17 years sales experience and eight years solely in ground shoring and temporary works, Brian Chambers was drawn to the shoring industry with a feeling he was suited to the nature of it. In 2014 he joined an extremely small team to start a new independent shoring hire company and grew it from the ground up to in 2018 seeing a buy out take over. This experience enabled him to continue learning, day on day, whilst gaining vital product and market knowledge.
Speaking on joining MGF he said: “In February 2021, to further advance my career and knowledge I decided to join MGF who had started to show just how professional they are in Scotland. MGF know what teamwork is and the common focus we have to make sure we can offer the full professional solution to our constantly expanding customer base so that our customers project is handled.”
Grant Williamson has 10 years’ experience working in the Scottish construction industry and joined MGF in July 2021, utilising seven years experience in temporary works in both structural support and groundworks. Speaking on what he looks forward to in the future he said: “Excited to be part of such a great and forward thinking company and being able to promote the benefits of UniShore and sell MGF as a solutions provider to our customers.
“It’s a great challenge to be involved in building and growing the Structural Support business in Scotland and Northern England. The experience, skills and knowledge that was already at MGF has been complimented with recent additions and together we can all move MGF forward and continue to create safe working environments for our customers.”
Fiona Macaloney has joined the team to help the MGF Scotland depot grow and expand into the Scottish construction market. Over the past six months she has been engaging with customers both old and new, discussing MGF’s market leading products that are developed and manufactured in-house.
Fiona has worked within the proprietary temporary works supply industry for the past 17 years. Over this time Fiona has developed a strong product knowledge and build long lasting relationships with colleagues and customers alike. She is looking forward to “the continual growth of the depot and expanding our foothold in the Scottish market”.
