Our Story

Watson Towers was established by Bobby Watson and David Towers in Wishaw, North Lanarkshire in 1971. After a successful 20 years in Wishaw, they decided to move to the grounds of a famous steel foundry called the Sun Works in Coatbridge.  The business maintained its dominance as a major steel plate process centre in Scotland and began to add a range of secondary operations that consistently enhanced their offering in the market. Now in its second generation, Neil  Watson and Fraser Towers continue to provide the utmost commitment to service, innovation and quality. Watson Towers now deliver innovative engineering solutions to a wide range of industries across the United Kingdom.
