Built to Last: Pat Munro celebrates 70 years in Business
One of the largest privately owned contractors operating in the Highlands and a recognised force in construction, civil engineering, quarry products, waste services and home building, Pat Munro (Alness) Ltd is celebrating 70 years in business this year – sharing our anniversary with VE Day. Going back to the start it is no surprise, with the birth of the business having its roots very firmly planted in the war effort.
Pat Munro senior bought Caplich Farm in Alness back in early 1938 and ran it as a chicken, turkey and duck farm. But in 1939 the UK Government commandeered the Munro family farm, for the purposes of extracting the sand and gravel there and using it to construct and maintain the military defences in the area. Seventy years on and still going strong, Pat Munro is well placed to accommodate further measured growth and take advantage of new opportunities that present themselves in the future, as well as keeping a firm eye on servicing its existing loyal and long standing customer base.
