Reekie People

It's a truism that every business is ultimately only as good as its people, and we make no apologies for saying it again. Our people are the lifeblood of our organisation: they maintain excellent relationships with our clients and make sure each project is managed, undertaken and delivered to the highest possible specification.

We have always invested heavily in our business to ensure our reputation for technical excellence is maintained. Without doubt the most important investment we make is in our people, as we work to maintain and enhance the skilled workforce that has made Reekie Machining the company it is.


”It's a privilege to lead Reekie Machining, and to continue to build our family business. We have been very lucky to have retained and built upon the strong engineering tradition of the business, and of course the harder we work at it, the luckier we become.” Colin Reekie
