Who we are

Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks

A family-run firm, established in 1968, Douglas Gillespie Plant has grown to become Scotland’s leading independent materials handling specialist. The company’s commitment to providing great products and service has earned the trust and returning trade of countless customers across the country: from Ayrshire to Aberdeen, Falkirk to Fife, Glasgow to Edinburgh.

From our headquarters in Glasgow we offer a comprehensive range of forklift services. As well as stocking a wide range of high quality forklift trucks for purchase and lease, we also have an extensive, well-stocked parts department and knowledgeable staff waiting to offer expert, impartial advice.

In addition to our professional in-house forklift technicians, we also have a team of over 15 highly trained mobile service engineers ready to provide routine on-site servicing and inspections or respond to emergency breakdowns.

DGP is widely recognised as Scotland’s go-to specialist in equipment protection, offering explosion proof trucks for use in hazardous Zone 1 and Zone 2 areas. Furthermore we also offer flame and explosion proofing conversions for diesel and electric forklifts, sideloaders, and other equipment, in accordance with ATEX guidance.
