who are we?

Sewing Machine Specialists was started by my father Tommy McGuire in 1965. Over the years we supplied industrial sewing machines to companies such as Levi Strauss and Alexandra Workwear. At the start of the millennium we diversified into industrial embroidery working in conjunction with Keith Mansfield and GS UK. We now offer sales and service of industrial sewing and embroidery machines.
We are based in Kirkintilloch where we have machinery on display for demonstration.
