Group members announce merger to increase FM services

01 April 2021

Two members of the building services investment group United Capital have confirmed they will merge their businesses, with the intention of offering a wide range of FM services.

Building services and construction company McGill and electrical and renewables contractor Alliance Electrical will merge and continue to trade under the McGill name.

Alliance Electrical managing director Errol Lawrie has run the company for the last 15 years and has been confirmed as the managing director of McGill.

He has led the two businesses for the past six months and has played a major role in their merger.

The joining of the two companies is designed to meet market demand for stable, mid-tier contractors offering a broad selection of services to the FM sector.

Employing more than 100 people, it will operate from the McGill offices in Dundee and has forecast annual turnover in excess of £15m for the financial year ahead.

Mr Lawrie said: "This move is hugely positive and will have benefits for our customers, our team, and our 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," he said.
