McDonald Engineers announces expansion plans

McDonald Engineers UK has unveiled its growth plans to double in size within five years as well as a company name change to McDonald Water Storage.

As part of the expansion and new branding, Jason Hobson, previously Managing Director of Gledhill, has been appointed as Divisional Director. He will be responsible for building a new English Division to ensure that the product and infrastructure is in place to meet customer requirements for current replacements and future market requirements.

The family owned and managed business was originally established in the 1940s as an engineering company, manufacturing a wider variety of products. However, for over 30 years, the company has been focused on the design and manufacture of copper hot water storage solutions, for both domestic and commercial applications.

Managing Director, Jamie Stewart, explained: “Our name has served us well over the years, however, we wanted to create a contemporary brand, which clearly demonstrates what we do, but which retained the heritage from over 70 years of manufacturing excellence. By rebranding as McDonald Water Storage, this continues the company heritage, but more clearly states what we do.”

He continued: “We are already recognised as a company that supplies widely throughout the UK. However, with a number of companies withdrawing their copper cylinders and bespoke manufacturing solutions, we believe we can achieve significant growth by filling this void and developing our customer base from there, particularly with our thermal stores and rectangular tanks suitable for Elson replacements.”
