Leading the Way in Youth Employment

Investing in the Future

We are absolutely delighted to announce that Mar Scaffolding is the first scaffolding company in Scotland to have achieved the new Investors in Young People award. Nat, our Managing Director has commented: “Training and investment in young people has long been an integral part of our business aims: many of our core staff came to us as school leavers and our high level of staff retention is testimony to the stability and opportunities within the company. We are proud to have received the IIYP award in recognition of our commitment to supporting young people, especially at a time when Fife as a region is experiencing very high levels of youth unemployment.”

Peter Russian, Chief Executive of Investors in People Scotland, said “I’m delighted that Mar Scaffolding have achieved IIYP and IIP accreditation. To see over 1,000 young people working in IIYP accredited organisations in such a short space since the launch date is testimony of the appeal, rigour and value that organisations across Scotland are putting on the award. We now have organisations accredited in nearly every geographical part of Scotland covering the private, public and third sector”

Bathgate Distillery Works

Working With Industry

Billy McKie and his squad are currently working at the Glen Turner Distillery in Bathgate, providing round the clock support for their fast paced site shutdown for maintenance. The works are both technically and physically demanding, meaning only our most experienced scaffolders and labourers are attending site. Mar Scaffolding have provided scaffolding services at this site for many years, and hope to continue this relationship in years to come.
