WGM Engineering is one of Scotland’s leading engineering solution providers who offer a complete turnkey solution across 3 main disciplines: Mechanical, Electrical and Civil Engineering. Initially formed in Milngavie in 1986 to distribute mechanical seals to local firms, the company expanded rapidly and now employs in excess of 200 staff and operates from three sites.
They recently invested in a bespoke 15,000 ft2 service centre which represents the biggest single investment in WGM’s history.
Location: Glasgow and Livingston areas of Scotland.
System: EMIR Professional
WGM were on the verge of a huge growth in business in 2006 and knew an investment needed to be made in an ERP solution to help keep control of the extra workload that was about to come. Having looked around the market-place they decided to have a look at EMIR back in 2006, with both Ian Mathieson [Managing Director] and Linda Mathieson [Director] reviewing the potential software available. Linda, in particular, was responsible for the implementation of EMIR and it is to her credit that the system was up and running so quickly after implementation and continues to respond to WGM’s changing business needs.
WGM Engineering ordered EMIR Professional in 2006, starting with a 6-user license in their Paisley site in Glasgow, but such has been the growth of WGM in recent times, they now have 24 users across two sites – their new site in Glasgow and a second site in Livingston.
As well as being full users of all the EMIR Professional modules, including running our full finance system, they also make good use of the Labour Scheduling extension to help manage their ever-growing staff and workload. WGM continually look to improve their EMIR system and have inspired many changes, including the use of contracting functionality, and are also holders of a Bronze Maintenance contract that ensures they continue to benefit from all the ongoing developments within the expanding EMIR user-base.
All-in-all, WGM’s success has done much to mirror the growth of EMIR throughout the industry and we wish them continued success and thank them for their input and support of all things EMIR!

“I am pleased to say that we have seen fantastic growth at WGM in recent times and it was critical to us that we chose a system that would give us total control of our business to ensure that this growth could be managed successfully. We have been really pleased with the EMIR software and the fact that we can customise it to suit our expanding business. It has given us the basis to rapidly increase our workload and turnover without losing sight of the importance of delivering a quality service and managing profitability”
Ian Mathieson, Managing Director.
