Family-owned bakery firm McGhee’s today announced plans to invest £3 million to increase production capacity at its flagship Glasgow site by a third.
The move is aimed at building on current growth at the Port Dundas-based firm, which is expected to see turnover increase by 10 per cent to more than £25m in this financial year. The extension to its bakery, at the M8 Food Park, is scheduled for completion in spring next year.
Gordon McGhee, managing director of the business, which employs more than 220 staff, said: “Our significant investment in extending the bakery will help us consolidate and expand our offering to customers, in particular in the export market and frozen food sectors.”
McGhee’s – which has additional operations in Kilmarnock and Motherwell – recently won the title of Scottish Baker of the Year. The firm was founded 80 years ago and bakes two million rolls a week.
