MacGregor Industrial Supplies has outlined its concerns about Brexit in its latest accounts.

The former Highland business of the year believes it will impact services it offers.

It stated in a report accompanying its accounts filed with Companies House: “The decision of the UK to leave the European Union has led to uncertainty with regards to supply of labour.

“The company is a proud employer of staff from countries all around the EU who work hard and have a range of highly regarded skills.

“There are many companies, around the area in which the company operates, in a similar position. The loss of supply of the EU labour force will result in a skills shortage and an increase in labour costs.

“This will affect some of the services the company offers."
