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 decades of experience in timber and building products, highly knowledgeable staff and 15 branches across Scotland, it’s easy to see why MGM is Scotland’s top independent timber merchant. Our experience and geographical spread enable us to provide unrivalled service to all 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, we pride ourselves on our values of always putting customers at the core of everything we do, our people, our integrity, delivering sustainable financial and environmental performance and we embrace the future through our proud family heritage of over 150 years trading. We are a wholly owned subsidiary of the group, along with our sister companies: Donaldson Timber Engineering, James Donaldson Timber, James Donaldson Insulation, Nu-Style, Timbercut4u, Rowan Manufacturing and Smith and Frater.

We have demonstrated to the market that we can drive the business forward in all trading conditions, whilst ensuring that the customer always comes first. Our ability to out-perform all independent competitors in Scotland helps us continue as Scotland’s largest independent timber merchant.


MGM now have 15 branches spread geographically throughout Scotland where we can service both your click and collect or delivered orders quickly and efficiently.

We pride ourselves in having local people who know and understand their local areas which enable us to offer an unrivalled level of attention and service to our ever-expanding customer base.

We are trusted in our local communities with our people being known and respected and we have strategically placed our branches in areas that enable our customers to get the most cost-effective place of contact.

We have the ability to use our branch network to source stock, specific products, individual length requirements or service an area that may not be local to the customers own address where we can use the closest branch.
