As we've done before our #TeamWilson's facebook posts pick out a member of the team, to show the amazing contributions they do week in week out. This week we have something special and a story which has brought us all some happiness in these difficult times.
Our focus this week in on Margaret Wilson, wife of the late James Pearson Wilson, and Mother of the current directors. Margaret and James were the founding partners of Jas P Wilson, which in the initial years operated as a contracting business, carrying out Land Drainage works with a fleet of County tractors.
This week Margaret had a pacemaker fitted, and we are blessed to say returned home in good spirits after spending only 5 hours in hospital - The second photo we've shared shows her at home the same day! She is 85 years young, and now thanks to the NHS she is safely back home. We are hugely grateful for the service the NHS has done for us, in particular in these challenging times.
From 1964, until 1992 Margaret managed the paperwork and books, and worked with her family as the business progressed from the contracting days into the business we all know today, supporting the Forestry & Firewood industry in the supply and service of specialist machinery.
For those who knew the business in those early days, and in particular those who visited us when the business was located in Carsethorn on Solway coast, this is where Margaret lives. Her view from the window is the pebble beach which many customers will remember as the test track for their County tractor demonstrations.
All the best Margaret, and thanks to our loyal customers over the years, we will continue to support you, as you have supported us. ... See MoreSee Less

Peekaboo – Look who’s turned 40 today! 👴
Jamie Ferrie was a new addition to #teamWilson’s in 2016.
With our push towards improving the service we could offer our customers; the decision was taken to hire a dedicated Parts Manager.
Jamie relocated from Wishaw central Scotland for his new position within the team. Jamie previously worked in a Doosan Dealership, where he was Parts Manager there. It was a big leap of faith for Jamie to move, and we’ve seen this dedication to the job from day 1.
He's been crucial in our plans to provide rapid parts back up, and now manages our new parts warehouse which has been the culmination of many years planning. The system he’s now implemented has seen our service and support times reduce with a well-stocked, well organised warehouse system.
Outside of work, Jamie is a keen follower of Football, and has now built a life in the local area to enjoy with his Fiancé and three kids. We’re grateful of the leap of faith Jamie originally made some 4 years ago now, and we are proud to have his experience to support our customers on the phone, and assist our Service Engineers on the road. ...

Happy Birthday Jamie 🎁😊
