Profit Track 100

Glasgow’s GAP hires out construction tools and equipment such as dumpers and mechanical diggers to house builders and contractors, including Balfour Beatty and Scottish Power. It also invested in non-mechanical plant, such as fencing and acrow support props, and created a lifting division in 2010. The performance of this business and a recovery of the construction sector led to profits of £10.7m in 2013. The family-firm is run by Douglas and Iain Anderson, 58 and 55 respectively, sons of the founder, Gordon.
