Expanding Dundee plumbing, mechanical and electrical firm moves to larger premises
A Dundee plumbing, mechanical and electrical firm is moving into new premises following an expansion in staff numbers.
PME (Dundee) Ltd was established in 2017 after the firm’s owners spotted an opportunity following the collapse of Dundee firm Scottish Electrical Group. The firm has also taken on staff from McGill, including apprentices, following its administration.
In the last year, PME (Dundee) has grown from two staff to 20 and has now moved into larger premises at Faraday Court.
Dave Page, one of the company founders, hopes the move will help the firm towards further expansion.
He said: “We have exceeded our projections and looking to the future, we are hoping to double the workforce in the next 18 months.
“The move to the new, larger premises, which we have invested about £20,000 refurbishing, will help us achieve our goals.
“When we started the firm, we were individually well-known in the industry and this has certainly helped get the firm established.
“On top of that, being able to attract top-quality staff has been hugely important too.”
Mr Page also paid tribute to the assistance provided by Dundee City Council, saying it had been “very helpful”.
Dundee City Council leader John Alexander helped the firm celebrate the opening of its new base yesterday.
He said: “I am delighted to see the growth of this local company as they move into their new base. I wish all connected with the firm the very best for the future.
“It was also pleasing to see that PME (Dundee) stepped in to give opportunities to people caught up in the administration of McGill.”
