WGM Engineering Company Profile

From the original 3 man set up in modest premises, the company now employs in excess of 150 personnel and operates from two interlinked but separate sites.

As managing director Ian Mathieson explained "WGM commenced trading in 1986 and was then primarily involved in sealing devices distributing a wide range of mechanical seals and packings manufactured by First 4 Seals.

Mr Mathieson continued "However due to industry and client demand, WGM developed it's operations to suit the marketplace offering mechanical, electrical and civil provision under the one roof. A venture which proved highly successful as the company has grown rapidly year on year since then.

This ongoing growth has resulted in making WGM one of Scotland's largest and most successful private engineering companies.

Indeed so successful has the company become in the last past 25 years that it has recorded sales of over £12.5 million in the last financial year and now excels in delivering walk away engineering solutions from start to finish.

Mr Mathieson went on "Our experience and resource covers a variety of industries as our markets lie in the water and waste water sectors, petrochemical, power and process areas as well as food and beverage.

We service these sectors from 2 modern and flexible service centres where the most and advanced equipment is available to carry out repairs and reclamation to our clients assets and from which, design, build, technical back up, site survey, installation, commissioning and after market services are offered.

These sites are located at Glasgow & Livingston.

Mr Mathieson said “ I would like to emphasise that we offer a total service which we consider to be unique within the market place and all our disciplines are carried out under the one roof".

He added our recent investment to build a bespoke 15,000 ft2 state of the art service centre which is to our new workshop and head office complex. The workshop houses an extended machining facility, new motor rewind centre, 25 tonne overhead crane, new shot blasting suite, pump repair workshop, dynamic balancing for rotating equipment and a state of the art pump test facility. The new premises represent the biggest single investment in WGM’s history and reflect our ongoing commitment to improving quality and service provision to our customers.

The development has taken considerably longer than first anticipated but the emphasis was to ensure we got it right. Consultation involving staff across the business resulted in numerous redesigns’ culminating in a facility that we are all very proud of.

Our Livingston Service Centre has undergone substantial investment and incorporates a state of the art valve refurbishment and test facility, large fabrication work shop , bridge refurbishment and large gearbox refurbishment centre.

The business offers a 24-hour service and a policy of on-going investment in plant and training company-wide.

WGM offer customers a quality service and products, for this we are indebted to the skills and dedication of our workforce without which we would not be in this position today.
