Falkirk East MSP, Angus MacDonald met Carron Bathrooms’s Commercial Director James McMorrine on a visit to the firm.
The Carron based company manufactures and sells a wide range of baths worldwide, making them Europe's leading bath manufacturer. Tracing its history back to the formation of the Carron Company over 250 years ago, the modern company now employs over 100 skilled workers.
All Carron Baths are available in CarroniteTM, a unique, patented manufacturing process developed by the company that enables their baths to retain heat longer and take more weight than other types of bath.
Commenting after a tour of the factory, Mr MacDonald said:
“It is clear that the people that work at Carron Bathrooms have a lot of pride in the history of the company and the high quality product they make today.
“Most of the 110 employees are from Carron, Carronshore, Bainsford or Langlees and a great deal of them have a photo on the wall marking 25 years of service. This is a testament to the loyalty and pride for the company that the employees have.
“Having just watched a bath being made with great precision and expertise, it is evident that Scottish manufacturing and inventiveness is alive and well at Carron Bathrooms.”
