Alan McLeish


Alan McLeish founded QTS 32 years ago with just one van, some tools and a dedication to tree surgery. Now, over three decades later QTS Group has become one of the UKs leading multi-discipline railway contractors with seven offices nationwide.

Alan has overseen the expansion of QTS from one employee to over 700 enabling us to offer first-rate services across the UK.
