Partnership inspires next generation as part of MGM’s 25th anniversary year

Fife based MGM Timber, one of Scotland’s largest independent timber merchants, has announced the winner of its 25th anniversary competition following Craft, Design and Technology pupils from Glenrothes, Dunfermline and Woodmill High Schools battling it out for the top spot.

Briefed with creating a decorative timber feature using materials sourced from MGM Timber in autumn last year, pupils from Glenrothes High School won the challenge. The team of four, Andrew Gallacher, Lauchlan Graham, Ryan Lawson and Harry Summers caught the judges’ eyes after designing a miniature forklift card holder made with six different types of wood. The pupils’ creation will now take pride of place in the MGM Glenrothes branch.

The company now trades out of 12 branches across Scotland and has recently completed the purchase of Hamilton-based Robert Reid & Sons Ltd. Last year, MGM Timber announced ambitious expansion plans to open new branches in Aberdeen and Edinburgh and are currently looking for suitable premises.
