Andrew Nichol, as Managing Director, is proud to continue his father’s tradition and principles in driving Nichol McKay forward, taking the long-term view in relation to continuing investment in machinery, systems and people. The company now employs 160 skilled staff including 16 apprentices progressing through an intensive four-year training programme.
Over the years a strong management team has been created, providing in-depth skill across the ever-growing spectrum of products and services that the company provides. So when Raymond’s youngest son Andrew joined the company in 1997 he was able to gain experience by working across all of the company’s departments, from production planning to quality control and finishing. The father-and-son team led this team for five years during which time Nichol McKay grew by a third to employ more than 120 people.
