MacDonald Trading was started in 1991 by Jim & Ann MacDonald. In the recession of this time there was a need for a supplier of low cost used shopfittings for retailers starting out or making changes to their shops. There was also a ready supply of equipment from unfortunate retailers closing down. The business developed quickly and as the nation's wealth improved so did the demand for new shopfittings. The name was changed to Mactra Shop Equipment & Fittings to give potential customers a better idea of what we did. Trevor Churchill joined the company as a consultant in 1994. With him he brought drawing and shop planning skills. Trevor & Jim designed the shops and Jim fitted them.
The late 1990's saw a change in the company's direction into the design and installation of purpose built display stands for leading UK brands such as Unilever , Bestfoods, Allied Bakeries and Entenmann's Cakes. Mactra continued to fit shops during this period.
In the early 2000s Mactra had display stands in nearly every supermarket in the UK. Changes to store policy of the 'big four' supermarkets meant the demand for 'off shelf ' displays disappeared and Mactra returned to concentrating on its core business of designing and fitting stores for the independent sector.
This is the story to date...... Shopfitting IT'S WHAT WE DO!
