McCaig Electrical Celebrate 25 Years in Business

Twenty Five Years on – From kitchen table to staff of 50 and electrical contractor John McCaig & Sons has celebrated a quarter century business.

The milestone was marked with an open day held at the company’s old farm road premises in Ayr and has been further enhanced by a short-listing in the annual Select Awards.

To help with the celebrations customers and suppliers of John McCaig & Sons attended to show their continuing support.

Director Frances McCaig said: “ We were delighted at the turn out for our open day, it is with the help and support of such people that has made the past 25 years such a success”.

John and Frances started the business in 1985, where they worked from their family home, while looking after their two young sons before moving to a leased premises in York Street in Ayr.

It was always their aim to own premises and they and they achieved this in September 2008. The prominent block 3 Old Farm Road became available and it proved to be ideal for the rapidly expanding business, which now employs 50.

It was always there wish that their two sons joined the company and they were delighted both of them decided to do so.

Frances said: We thought it was extremely important John and Jamie had a trade behind them, so both served their apprenticeships as electricians”.

John now holds the position of Contracts manager and Jamie is Estimator/Buyer.

Dad John said : “ we feel the experience both our sons have within the company stands them in good stead for the many years they have ahead of them”.

In 2005, Robert Stirrat, who started working for John McCaig & Sons in 1998, was made a Director. Robert started off as an electrician and has worked through the ranks.
