Your Needs, Our Priority


We at McKinnon and Forbes Ltd take a great deal of pride and pleasure in introducing our family run company to you.

McKinnon & Forbes was formed in October 1994 by Bob McKinnon and Andrew Forbes.

After a year or so of hard work, we moved to our current premises in Clark St, Paisley. This allowed us to expand into  bodyshop repair work, it was also around this time the ownership of the company transferred soley to Bob.

Bob was then over the next couple of years joined by both his sons Robert and Steven, and latterly his daughter Anne.

We have now been established for 24 years and situated were we are just minutes from the M8 at the St James intersection near Glasgow Airport we are close to one of Glasgow’s main transport arteries.

As a family run business hard work has allowed us to grow and establish ourselves as an honest customer focused company.

At present we have 4 apprentices and all our other technicians and parts people are fully qualified in every aspect of the work we carry out from SVQ certified vehicle parts storeman to award winning Iveco trained mechanics.
