More investment at tile firm site

A LOCHMABEN firm has announced further investment.

Following the unveiling of its £2m upgraded utility plant at Halleaths, roof tile manufacturer Russell Roof Tiles (RRT) has now invested a further £250,000 in equipment.

The firm has just taken delivery of new state-of-the-art, heavy duty vehicles to help improve efficiencies. This includes a brand-new Doosan DL280 wheel loader.

Operations director Bruce Laidlaw said: “It’s important that we continue to make new investments to boost productivity and support our team.

“Using new machinery also helps strengthen our aim to reduce our carbon footprint and become carbon neutral by 2040. We’re working with independent body Planet Mark who are verifying and measuring carbon data to reduce emissions across our whole business.”

RRT employs 60 staff at its Lochmaben base.
