MGM Timber (Scotland) joins the BMF

25 January 2017

The Builders Merchants Federation (BMF) has welcomed large Scottish independent merchant MGM Timber (Scotland) into membership.

The company employs over 165 staff, has an annual turnover of over £42m and trades out of 12 branches across Scotland.

It recently completed the purchase of Hamilton-based Robert Reid & Sons Ltd. Last year, MGM Timber announced ambitious expansion plans to open new branches in Aberdeen and Edinburgh and is currently looking for suitable premises.

“As a progressive and forward thinking company they are set to be an active and valuable BMF member in Scotland,” said Graham Bolton, BMF Scotland regional manager.

Brian Smith, MGM sales director, said joining the BMF was a positive move for the company, with benefits such as training and development, market data and networking.
