Headquartered in Benbecula in the Western Isles, MacInnes Bros Ltd has helped shape the Construction and Civil Engineering landscape of the Highland and Islands since being established as a limited company in 1992.
Company Managing Director, Ewen P. MacInnes has overseen the development of the family based MacInnes Brothers (est 1978) to the current MIB Limited company. The development of the company workforce and the steady expansion of the business has allowed MIB to evolve from it’s construction based origins into large scale Civil Engineering projects.
This adaptability and desire to produce high quality projects showcases the talent that the local island tradesmen and plant operators possess. This longevity demonstrates an inherent resilience to produce projects of the highest standards, on time and within budget, against the logistically and environmentally challenging conditions of the North West of Scotland.
These qualities have allowed MIB to deliver an extensive number of projects for regional clients such as;
• Comhairle nan Eilean Siar
• Highlands and Islands Airport (HIAL)
• Storas Uibhist
• Marine Harvest
Along with national clients such as;
• Scottish Water
• Scottish and Southern Electricity
• WHP Telecoms
In addition, MIB have been entrusted with large scale sub-contracting contracts from Scottish mainland companies such as;
• Ross-Shire Engineering
• Kier Construction
• Robertson Construction
