The first honour presented was for Scottish Family Business of the Year (Large). The second honour, the Outstanding Contribution Award, serves as a public recognition of the significant long-term contribution made by an individual who has played a key part in building and sustaining a company’s growth. This was awarded to Graham McAlpine.

Mr McAlpine has stewarded the company for the last 55 years, and continues to do so at the age of 81, playing a hands-on role in the family business. 

Founded in 1902, McAlpine takes pride in constant innovation and is widely acknowledged for developing a number of ‘firsts’ in its industry. In 1957, for example, it became the first UK company to manufacture plastic traps. 

With three manufacturing factories and a further five premises in the Glasgow area, and ownership of a distributor in the US, McAlpine employs over 750 people and manufactures over 4500 individual products. With a worldwide distributor network, the business exports specifically designed products to over eighty countries.
