Building services and construction firm McGill and electrical and renewables contractor Alliance Electrical are merging to trade under the McGill name.
The companies, both owned by specialist building services investment group United Capital, will combine to offer a wider range of FM services.
The business forecasts an annual turnover of more than £15 million in the coming financial year and plans to take advantage of market demand for strong and stable mid-tier contractors offering a wide scope of hard FM services.
Errol Lawrie, Alliance Electrical’s managing director for the past 15 years, has been confirmed as managing director of McGill – having fulfilled this role for the past six months and orchestrated the merger.
Lawrie said: “This move is hugely positive and will have benefits for our customers, our team, and our other stakeholders. Bringing together McGill and Alliance combines their core strengths and solidifies McGill’s position as a quality, national mid-tier contractor for the long term. We have already seen the fruits of our efforts and we will announce more news in the coming weeks.”
Graeme Carling, CEO of parent company United Capital, added: “Errol has done a fantastic job pulling together the operational parts of both businesses and I am excited for the future. McGill celebrates 40 years in business this year and I am confident that we have created a business that will still be here in another 40 years.”
The merged business and its 100-plus employees will operate from the McGill offices on Harrison Road in Dundee and will continue to deliver all trades services across Scotland.
