A central heating firm that was acquired by the Dundee owner of McGill earlier this year has won a six-figure Angus Council contract as it hopes to expand its east coast operations.
Saltire Facilities Management was acquired in May by building services investment organisation United Capital, which also owns McGill and Alliance Electrical Services in Forfar.
After a competitive tendering process, Saltire has been awarded a gas heating installation pilot contract with Angus Council worth over £250,000.
The contract, which will see Saltire install new gas heating systems in 86 properties, will be delivered by local teams reporting to the company’s head office in Bellshill, Glasgow.
General manager John Reynolds said: “Earlier this year we announced our intentions to expand our operations up the east coast and this contract win is another significant step towards realising our ambitions.
“Our local teams work exceptionally hard to maintain our excellent reputation and I am delighted that their efforts have led to new contract wins.”
Saltire has more than 320 direct employees and an annual turnover of £30 million.
United Capital said it continued to target the acquisition of UK building services and facilities management companies with the aim of reaching a collective turnover of £500m within five years.
