About us

MGM Timber (Scotland) Ltd was established in 1991 and has grown to become Scotland’s local independent timber merchant of choice for both trade and retail customers.

With 25+ years of experience in timber and building products, highly knowledgeable staff and 12 branches across Scotland, it’s easy to see why MGM is Scotland’s top independent timber merchant. Our experience and geographical spread enables us to provide unrivalled service to all of our customers, large or small. We offer only the highest quality products and excellent value for money, with a personal, local service which is second to none.

Since 2005 we have been part of the James Donaldson Group of companies which has been in business for over 150 years. We are a wholly owned subsidiary of the group, along with our sister companies: Donaldson Timber Engineering Ltd, James Donaldson Timber Ltd and James Donaldson Insulation Ltd.

Being part of a long-established, family run business instils in us a family ethos; above all else, MGM is a company based on loyalty to one another and absolute professionalism. We have a loyal commitment to our customers, which has earnt us a reputation for being an honourable business to deal with.

Last year has seen us continue as Scotland’s largest independent timber merchant. In this year’s end of year results, MGM achieved impressive sales and pre tax profit, putting the company ahead of all its independent competitors in Scotland, with the overall performance even surpassing that of many large national competitors.

Managing Director of MGM Timber (Scotland) Ltd, David Mansell comments:

“We have demonstrated to the market that we are capable of driving the business forward in all trading conditions, whilst ensuring that the customer always comes first. We are delighted with our results this year, and incredibly proud to be Scotland’s largest and most successful independent Timber Merchant.”
