At the end of May we held a cheese and wine night to celebrate the official opening of our new business headquarters in Airdrie. After nine years providing facilities maintenance services to clients and with our company going from strength to strength, we’ve moved out of our former offices in Saline Street and are now the proud owners of our own premises in Southburn Road in the town.
Upon arrival at our new premises, guests were treated to a champagne reception and canapés. We had music and Managing Director of MGB Services, Mark Greenaway, gave a motivational speech. The event was attended by staff, business partners, sub-contractors and councillors who helped make it a great evening for us all. Particular thanks go to Jim Logue, Leader of North Lanarkshire Council for carrying out the official opening and for his kind words of encouragement and support.
Mark said: “Thanks to everyone who came along to help us celebrate. We’ve come a long way in the last nine years. Our new premises give us the space and environment we need to continue to deliver a spectacular service to our clients. It also marks the start of an exciting new chapter in the development of our business.”
Mark is from Airdrie and is keen to keep his company in the town as it grows. He commented: “I want MGB Services to remain in Airdrie. Not only is it an excellent commuting town between Glasgow and Edinburgh, but it’s also where I am from. I believe that it’s important to invest in your own community. As the company grows, we’ll continue to employ local staff and use local suppliers where possible. That’s why it was important for me to host this event. It allowed me to thank our staff and local sub-contractors and suppliers for their hard work and dedication over the past nine years. I was delighted that the Leader of North Lanarkshire Council came along to open our new Head Office and other local councillors and business partners showed their support too.’
