Glasgow-based GDC Design, which operates throughout Scotland and as far south as Birmingham, is projecting sales of £4m in 2023 from its bespoke joinery, manufacturing, interior fit-out, design and project management work. Its client base spans local authorities, the NHS, national government, charities, dentists, hospitality, retail and construction clients.
Graham Christie, GDC Design’s previous owner and managing director, is retaining a minority shareholding in the business and remain a director of GDC Design until his planned retirement in 2025.
Edison founder and chief executive Calum Melville said: “We are investing over £500,000 in GDC Design to build an infrastructure and platform to drive growth over the next few years with an expanded offering which includes construction, project management, architectural services, bespoke joinery, furniture manufacture, interior design, interior fit out, all trades, driveways, landscaping, property maintenance and refurbishment.
“We have been very impressed with the high quality of work undertaken by Graham and his team. GDC Design is an extremely good fit for Edison Group, our strategic, and growth aims over the next few years.”
He added: “We are looking at complementary businesses and are projecting sales of £20 million on a rolling 12 months by the end of 2023 driven by further strategic acquisitions and organic growth.”
