AN Aberdeenshire man has ended 2020 on a high note by announcing the launch of a new business venture.
Investment worth in excess of £170,000 has enabled the establishment of the Fordoun-based Grampian Trailer Centre Scotland which stocks trailers for horses, motorcycles, general purpose and box trailers.
With enquiry levels already ahead of expectations, the creation of the new business is giving cause for added optimism at the end of a challenging year for founder Ruari McLachlan who also heads inshore workboat operator McLachlan Marine from the same site.
Ruari said: “Through sister company McLachlan Marine, we already have a lot of experience in selling boat trailers across many years so this was a natural progression for our business and an important diversification at the end of a turbulent year.
“Our existing headquarters at the old airfield at Fordoun give us an abundance of space from which to operate.”
