Transport & Shipping firm Ferguson Transport (Spean Bridge) Ltd has purchased Barclay Bros Limited for an undisclosed sum.

Ferguson Transport & Shipping, Scotland’s Environmental Haulier of the Year, has continued to grow in recent years and this further investment will enhance the service from their new business premises in Methill, adjacent to the Energy Park in Fife.

Barclay Bros Limited is a family run business that has been in the haulage industry for more than fifty years.

Alasdair Ferguson, Group Managing Director of Ferguson Transport Shipping comments: “The operations of Barclay Bros Limited are complementary to those of Ferguson Transport & Shipping and, combined, they will strengthen our range of services to the logistics market, and servicing business contracts from the east of Scotland, to the south of England and Wales. We are pleased to welcome all new staff to the group who will join our team of over 200 employees, and we look forward to working with them all.”

Their main base and head office is at Corpach near Fort William, although they also operate from the company’s own port and warehousing facilities at Kishorn and as well as work out of Kyle of Lochalsh and Mallaig.
