Following their own redundancies, directors Matthew McCallum and Nick McGill founded the company in February 2019. Since then, Summit has achieved several industry accreditations and reached a turnover of £2 million over the course of of the 12 months preceding September 2021.



Slowly building the business and acquiring Tayside Automatic Doors in 2020, Summit has focused on providing quality craftsmen and services to undertake routine and specialist contracts. From two initial founders, Summit appointed its 20th employee in 2021. The team now includes three apprentices and is a certified living wage employer.

Citing both people and a focus on accredited services as the foundation of their success, Nick McGill said, “When Matthew and I decided to go it alone, it was very important to us that we didn’t not only provide quality service, based on our six decades of combined expertise, but that we would also become a valued local employer.

“We are delighted to have strengthened our workforce with fantastic local artisans and also to support the next generation, to invest in the future of the business and the sector, by offering apprenticeships and, with the acquisition of Tayside Automatic Doors, we were also able to hire an automatic door engineer trainee.

Matthew added: “It was also essential that Summit Facilities Services got the right accreditations from the start and we continue to develop them. Most recently, in September 2021, we were accredited by SNIPEF, the Plumbing Employers Federation of Scotland and Northern Ireland, to complement our existing SELECT, NICEIC and Constructionline accreditations.



“Our customers know that we always strive to provide an efficient, professional and cost-effective service and we back this up with continuous improvement and the quality of our accreditations. Whether it’s routine checks or implementing a planned maintenance program, our customers know that the work will be performed to a guaranteed quality standard.

While the previous three years have not been easy for any company, Matthew and Nick agree that this gives the Summit team even greater confidence for the years to come.

Nick said: “We got off to a great start in 2019 and subsequently really found our feet in providing the support our customers needed to get them through a very difficult time, while adapting our practices and operations to keep our customers and employees secure and grow our own business.

“We feel like we made the right choice in naming the company in 2019. Whether we made it to the top remains to be seen, but with our incredible team and range of capabilities, we are definitely on our way to reaching the top. Mountain peak. ”
