IN this week's SME Focus, an entrepreneur with a record in brand and product development offers an insight into how Scottish manufacturers can grow sales at home and overseas.
Name: Donny Carstairs.
What is your business called? The Just Slate Company.
Where is it based? Kirkcaldy, Fife.
What does it produce, what services does it offer? From our workshops in Scotland, The Just Slate Company hand-crafts a range of slate tableware products. We hand-cut each individual slate piece to fit with our contemporary designs. Using traditional methods, each piece of slate is selected, cut, shaped, foam-backed, finished and inspected before packing. Historically, our best sellers were coasters and placemats – more recently, we have been focusing on more giftable products, such as mezze platters, canapé trays and sushi sets.
