Naylor Scotland marks extension of manufacturing operation

Published:  14 September, 2015

Naylor Scotland's Fife factory has celebrated the commissioning of its new twin wall drain line in an unveiling ceremony attended by Fife MSP David Torrance.

The new line, which cost in excess of £1m, allows the company to make 150mm, 225mm and 300mm pipe, which will increase product availability in Scotland and reduce the company's internal transportation of a product Naylor previously only made in Yorkshire.

Naylor have manufactured plastic pipes for ducting and surface water drainage in Scotland since acquiring the business of Argival Plastics in 2004.

Jim Crawford, managing director of Naylor Scotland, said: “This is a tremendously exciting development which will further increase our self-sufficiency north of the border.”
