Scottish family company celebrates 40 years business growth

Scotland's leading independent forklift truck specialist, Douglas Gillespie Plant (DGP), is celebrating its 40th year in business this month. The expanding family business, based in Darnley, Glasgow, has customers throughout Scotland in a wide range of industries including construction, manufacturing, food and drink and timber.

Douglas Gillespie, Chairman and Managing Director says, “We are delighted to reach such a landmark in our business. The stability and growth over the years is a testament to the dedication of our staff and the trust and confidence our valued customers place in us to deliver the best possible materials handling service for their businesses. Many of our first customers are still very loyal to us after 40 years, proof that so many appreciate our commitment
to them.”

Gillespie adds, “The future looks bright for us. Despite the current economic climate, business is good. We have recently taken on new staff members across our sales, marketing and service departments and the company recently won a Gold Award with Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks. The family tradition is also continuing with our daughter, Tracey, keenly engaged in the business.”

DGP prides itself on the unbiased advice it gives to customers, which ensures the best materials handling solution for every situation. The company also recently became the sole dealership in central Scotland for Mitsubishi forklift trucks and parts. As well as supplying fork lift trucks, DGP also specialises in sideloaders, multi-directionals, flame protected machinery and industrial cleaning equipment for a wide number of industries.

DGP's team of highly experienced mobile service engineers operate throughout Scotland, providing 24/7 servicing to ensure maximum productivity for customers. The company also offers Thorough Examination testing and driver training.

Competitive finance packages for new or used equipment, and flexible contracts for long or short term hire, mean that a deal can always be tailored to meet the customer's materials handling needs and budget.
