You will remember last year when we announced our collaborative project with Grays School of Art through a Knowledge Transfer Partnership with the appointment of a dedicated design role within our business. (If you don’t remember, the link to read the article for more info is here: Montrose Rope and Sail & Grays School of Art Partnership)
We are now at a stage the company can reveal the plans for the project with a pre-launch on the horizon.
Just before Christmas in Montrose on Sunday the 16th of December, Mo Cross, North East Scotlands inaugural Links Cross Event took place and brought an exciting and challenging new round to the Super Quaich Cyclocross Series, a cycling event which takes place in different locations in Scotland.
We were approached by a customer who was looking for a good way to transport Wargame Miniatures. There are various products on the market for transporting miniatures, but none quite suited their needs.
We were approached by Mearns Vintage Vehicle Club to manufacture a giant football which would be battered around a pitch by vintage tractors at the Fettercairn Show 2018. The old workhorses owned by members of Mearns Vintage Vehicle Club are regularly on show at the annual event and club chairman Mike Robertson said the idea was to serve up “something a bit different” in the main arena. We’re confident that we have created a football that will be a match for anything. Take a look at the match highlights here: hhttps://bit.ly/2NkCKKg
