Founded by brother and sister team Graeme and Gill Riley, what began life as GGR Glass Services is now Europe’s foremost supplier of complete lifting solutions, with GGR Group boasting the largest fleet of lifting equipment for sale or hire. Part of the Group, GGR Glass is the UK’s largest glass handling website.
A highly successful business that employs more than 150 people nationwide, GGR Group has supplied solutions to some of the country’s highest-profile construction projects, including The Shard, Crossrail, and HS2 to name but a few. In the UK, the company operates from three sites, its headquarters in Manchester, state of the art facility at Thame (near Oxford), and Glasgow, as well as having products available from more than 30 specialist dealers across Europe, South Africa, and the United Arab Emirates.
But perhaps most remarkable of all is that this growth has been engendered without ever compromising on GGR’s family-run ethos – Gill and Graeme are still at the helm, nearly 26 years later, and people remain resolutely at the heart of all the business does. The GGR story is one of determination, resilience, and, above all, an ongoing commitment to innovation. It is not surprising, therefore, that the business is now breaking new ground in the field of sustainable lifting solutions.
