GLASGOW—August 25, 2009
Royal Strathclyde Blindcraft Industries (RSBi), the Glasgow based manufacturing company that employs staff with disabilities, has completed a contract worth over quarter of a million, supplying housing developer Dickie and Moore Ltd, with timber kit frames for their latest luxury development.
The contract reflects RSBi’s continued growth in market share on projects within the private housing sector, as well as increasing recognition in the quality of their products by big name Scottish developers.
RSBi was responsible for the design and manufacture of the top quality timber kit frames procured by joinery contractor Montgomerie Joinery Ltd, to construct the shells of the four bed luxury villas and three bedroom semi detached houses at the Hapland Mill project in affluent Dunlop, Ayrshire.
A number of the stunning, modern houses, which retail from £189,500 upwards have been snapped up by customers recognising the luxury finish and quality of the homes – further demonstrating that there is positive movement within the Scottish housing market.
Willie Docherty, managing director of construction and maintenance company City Building, which manages RSBi, said: “This contract is testament to the quality of work being produced by our staff, whilst this recognition by Dickie and Moore has also helped continue to establish us as a major player within the housing development sector.
“We have been witnessing a steady increase in demand for our products and services, which I believe reflects a cautious but gradual boost in confidence in the property market.”
John Dickie, joint founder of Dickie and Moore added, “The quality of the workmanship in their products and professionalism of the staff at RSBi are second to none.
“We have established a solid working relationship with the company and I am confident that there will be opportunities to work in partnership again for future developments.”
RSBi employs staff unable to work in mainstream roles due to disabilities including blindness, learning difficulties, deafness and limb loss. RSBi provides comprehensive training for staff, creating the opportunity for them to develop skills in a range of areas and supporting the delivery of real progression prospects for each individual.
