CGC defies gloom with launch of new division

Renfrewshire-based CGC has defied the downturn by announcing it has created a new division for the business.

City Gate Construction has launched a steel and door division which it described a “natural fit” to its existing portfolio of services.

The good news from CGC came just a week after Britain plunged into recession with increasing worries over mass job losses in the coming months.

CGC, however, continues to buck the trend and is staffing its new manufacturing division with five highly experienced engineers – hired in recent weeks.

Significantly, CGC is expecting substantial opportunities in “touchless door technology” in light of the pandemic and has identified this as an area where it sees future growth

The new division is based at CGC’s Fulbar Road premises in Paisley – home to its steel operation.

It will offer installation of automatic doors, roller shutters and steel doors along with their ongoing maintenance.

Announcing the new development, CGC managing director Leo Reilly said: “This is a hugely-significant development for the business as we buck the trend of economic gloom and face the future with confidence.

“It is also good news for our existing CGC workforce who are part of a forward-thinking business which is expanding when others are finding the economic climate challenging.”
