MCINTOSH HEAVY LOGISTICS

HeavyTorque Issue 7: McIntosh Heavy Logistics

MAN, THAT’S HEAVY!

HEAVY HAULAGE SPECIALISTS ARE THIN ON THE GROUND, EVEN WHERE THERE ARE THE BIG INDUSTRIAL OPERATIONS TO SUPPORT THEM; BUT THEY ARE EVEN MORE SPARSE NORTH OF THE BORDER. WE’VE SPOKEN TO ONE OF THE BEST-KNOWN AND PRE-EMINENT HEAVY HAULIERS IN SCOTLAND, MCINTOSH HEAVY LOGISTICS (MHL) FROM ECHT, ABERDEENSHIRE. THEY’VE JUST CELEBRATED FORTY YEARS IN BUSINESS, BUT THEIR HAULAGE ROOTS GO DEEPER THAN THAT, AS IAN NORWELL DISCOVERS.

Gary McIntosh is the third generation of his family to run haulage businesses in Aberdeenshire. His grandparents, Albert and Margaret, founded the company in 1951, gathering together a variety of skilled construction trades with a modest haulage operation to support it. The next generation, Bert McIntosh and his wife Moira, branched out into a plant hire operation in 1976, just eight miles away from the family’s original Crathes base, at Echt, and ten miles west of Aberdeen.
