Our Story

Meldrum Joinery & Building’s current Chief Executive, Derek Petterson, is the son of James Petterson who bought the business
in 1951. 

Derek left the forces after serving 7 years in the Army to work with his father. When James passed away, Derek took over the business. He works closely with his nephew and James’ grandson Gavin Maclean, who is our firm’s General Manager.

The culture and focus of our business is one of a family nature – ensuring quality of workmanship and customer excellence before, during and after the completion of your project.

The Meldrum team includes a number of highly trained and experienced joinery and building professionals, employed locally here in Perth, and who have been with the firm for many years.

Our team continues to grow as they have their own family working with them – for example our Contracts Manager, Mike Cunningham, has his wife Susie Cunningham, Company Secretary, and his son Brendon working with us. We have established solid relationships with long-standing customers both locally and throughout Scotland.
