Mactaggart & Mickel Group has been declared the Property & Construction Family Business of the Year for 2016.
The renowned family housebuilder scooped one of the top awards at the fourth Family Business of the Year Awards hosted in London earlier this month by Family Business United.
Open to family firms of all generations, sizes and sectors, the awards recognise the diversity, strength and depth of family firms across the UK and highlight the contribution they make to the UK economy.
Commenting on Mactaggart & Mickel Group’s success, director Ross Mickel said:
“Receiving this award is particularly meaningful as it recognises our core values; we believe our success lies in the fact that we have built our company into an extended family.
“We value every member of our team, and have a culture of support and sense of belonging that everyone feels working for us. We strive to support family life in a sector where this is not always easy and continually endeavour to expand the boundaries, setting benchmarks for the industry and becoming a leading company invested in its people.”
Paul Andrews, founder and managing director of Family Business United (FBU), added:
“This was a tough category but Mactaggart & Mickel Group is a deserving winner. It is a fantastic family firm dating back over 90 years with great leadership and passion at the fore helping to create the great family business that it remains today.
“The judges were impressed with the innovation, investment and support, and the way that it has evolved as a business to succeed in creating a lasting legacy for generations to come.”
Now a fourth-generation family business – a feat achieved by only 3 per cent of family run organisations in the UK – Mactaggart & Mickel Group has evolved to maintain its place as the Scottish housebuilder with the highest reputation. With 15 active sites across the central belt it is leading the way in quality and innovation in the Scottish housebuilding industry.
