Team GMG – a growing family

Incorporated in 1987, GMG Contractors Ltd is a family-owned construction and contracting company that has evolved from a slating and plastering sub-contractor to a multi-trade main contractor with a growing turnover and extensive repeat business.

GMG’s clients include premier private house builders, national construction companies, local authorities and housing associations.

Operating from a two-acre main site in Baillieston, in the east end of Glasgow, and a satellite yard in Cumbernauld, GMG directly employs more than 100 people – 40 per cent of them apprentices and 60 per cent trades, office and managerial staff – alongside around 70 self-employed contractors.

GMG’s recruitment policy carefully balances and combines young workers eager to learn, with experienced tradespeople who can pass on their skills and good habits. With 27 apprentices currently on the company’s books, GMG has an average workforce age of 26, which is one of the youngest profiles in our industry.

In line with recommended Health and Safety regulations, working at height and good working practices in construction, it is our company policy that every GMG tradesperson is provided with an apprentice, subsidised by the business.

This elevates and strengthens a safer working environment for our workforce.

We also believe that customer satisfaction has been a necessary requirement when it comes down to all of the work we have undertaken, and we ensure that each and every project meets our exceptionality high standards of quality.
