About

Originally founded as Glendinning Bros by Graham and Walter Glendinning then later joined by Billy, Leslie and Sandy Glendinning, the Company still remains very much a family orientated business with Managing Directors Norman, Alistair, Robert and Graeme Glendinning, the sons of the original brothers following in the family footsteps. With over 40 years experience we offer design, pre-construction advice, construction, commissioning and maintenance works for water and wastewater infrastructure projects, specialised civil engineering and agricultural contracting services.

Our ongoing investment in plant and specialist equipment enables us to keep abreast of ever developing technologies and expectations of our customers with the right machine for the job. A fleet of modern vehicles ensures reliability and efficiency in the field. All of our fleet maintenance and Plant testing is completed within our own workshop facilities, this enables the company to keep fleet availability as high as possible and down time to a minimum.
