A marketing firm has won a contract to distribute millions of leaflets for Scottish tourism bodies in a deal which it believes is the biggest of its kind awarded in Scotland.

EAE Limited will deliver and display more than five million promotional brochures and leaflets in 5,000 outlets across Scotland annually under a contract worth around £1m.

Midlothian-based EAE expects to create four new jobs after winning the contract, which will help secure the future of the 44 full-time staff employed by the company.

EAE will distribute leaflets for VisitScotland, Historic Scotland, the Scottish Parliamentary Corporate Body and the National Trust for Scotland for the next two years.

Glenn Bennett, managing director of EAE, said: "While there is no doubt that more and more people are accessing visitor information online and through mobile devices, there is still very significant proven demand for printed materials that people can pick up as they travel across Scotland."

Privatey owned EAE will work on the contract with the Len Lothian storage business.
