    This morning one of our team went to visit Lochcarron and says they were all really positive about E-Land buying the company. E-Land are looking to greatly increase Locarron’s manufacturing ability – in a short time span as well, we’ve heard – before christmas. This is great news for Scottish made products and will give a huge boost to local employment. So all good news.
