We’ve been going back through our packed email inbox for some stories we may have missed and here’s one about a great British (and Scottish) manufacturing success – Gray & Adams. We just love that drone image of their premises looking out over the coast at Fraserburgh in the north east Scotland. One of the best jobs you can get is being sent up there to pick up a brand new, immaculate trailer and deliver it somewhere in the south of England 😀
