15 jobs have been saved after MacGregor Industrial Supplies Limited acquired Balgownie Limited and Balgownie Rentals Limited, which had entered administration last month.

Joint administrators Richard Bathgate and Graeme Bain of Johnston Carmichael LLP confirmed the sale of the 117-year-old machinery business and assets of both companies.

The sale includes both the Inverurie and Turriff trading sites.
