Who We Are

Our History


Boyd Brothers is a family run electrical and civil engineering contractor, established in 1967. We’re passionate about what we do which is delivering infrastructure to the highest standard. We believe in a sustainable future and that’s why we specialise in electric vehicle charging, active travel and energy storage infrastructure. Decarbonising transport, creating safer friendlier places and being a trusted partner to our clients is what we do.

We believe in investing in our team of skilled professionals. Every team member is fully certified and experienced. Our team have delivered over 1000 projects delivered in the past ten years. 70% of our business is repeat custom. This is only made possible by our dedicated team delivering the highest quality workmanship and service.

We view our customers as partners and believe collaboration is vital for success.


The Boyd Brothers journey begins with John Boyd a former coal mining electrician starting his own electrical contracting business. A large development contract from West Lothian housing quickly follows.


John is joined by his eldest son, Ian, who starts his career as the business' first apprentice electrician, studying at Bathgate Technical College. A few years later (1978) Robert follows his elder brother’s footsteps and joins the growing family business. Several housing contracts follow to add to the already successful industrial and commercial customer base.


John Boyd elects to step back from the business taking a well-earned rest through a semi-retirement role, leaving the boys to carry on his good work. The company continues to go from strength to strength.


The third generation of Boyd family members soon arrive in the form of Amy, John, Stephen, and Stuart. Many more medium to large electrical projects follow.


The company begins to focus on the growing renewable energy sector and electric vehicle (EV) infrastructure. Boyd Brothers partner with trusted partner SWARCO to offer a winning combination of infrastructure specialist and EV charger expertise. Our very first EV project follows shortly afterwards at Caledonian MacBrayne's ferry terminal.


A civil engineering team is added to meet the needs of the ever expanding EV infrastructure projects. Boyd Brothers now offer a one stop shop to clients from initial concept, design, planning, construction, and client sign off.


Due to the ever growing team the company moves from its hometown operation in Fauldhouse to a new base in Livingston. With a growing reputation for quality and service Boyd Brothers becomes the go to EV infrastructure specialist, all the while retaining its historical electrical contracting division for key clients.


In partnership with Dundee City Council, Boyd Brothers design and build Dundee’s Award-winning hub in Princes Street which receives International accolades and puts Dundee at the forefront of EV infrastructure innovation


The team expands to include an Active Travel department. Quickly winning worked focused on delivering infrastructure that enables more walking, cycling and wheeling.
