Alex Sloan is planning to take over the former Galscot factory
on the town’s industrial estate and manufacture timber products
including kit houses.
Mr Sloan, who
has to apply for planning permission, is hoping to start up
by March next year if everything goes according to plan.
He has already
signed up Derek Robison, who has wide experience in the building
trade, as his production manager.
It was after
he was approached by the ‘Free Press’ this week that Mr Sloan,
a former councillor, revealed details of his latest business
He said he got
the idea after he had work done on his own home and noticed
that much of the material was transported from the North of
Scotland with even the roof trusses coming from Forfar.
