Commerce, trade and business together with education have driven the heartbeat of Glasgow for over 300 years.
From its traditional base in heavy industries such as ship building and manufacturing, Glasgow continues to evolve and regenerate. It is now one of Europe’s top 20 financial centres as well as a highly regarded hub for life sciences, engineering, creative industries, design and manufacturing.
The city also boasts a strong entrepreneurial spirit; its city merchants led the growth of the tobacco and sugar trade, with some of their wealth helping support world renowned artists, architects and musicians. And today Glasgow continues to boast many internationally successful family and private businesses across a wide array of industries.
We are also passionate about our culture, arts and sports – Glasgow is the home of Scottish Ballet and Scottish Opera, host of the World Piping Games, and most recently the city opened its arms to the world with the Commonwealth Games 2014.
Over the years, our Glasgow office has also grown and we now employ around 300 industry and technical specialists. We know experience and insight is important so we constantly invest in our team to ensure we have the right skills across areas you operate in, whether it is food and drink, energy, financial services, life sciences, health or public sector services....the list is extensive.
The business world never stands still for long and that is why we believe it is important to get to know you...... so we can understand your present and help you prepare for the future. We look forward to meeting you soon.
