Lanark firm Border Biscuits to expand operations
A Lanarkshire biscuit maker is to expand its operations after securing a seven-figure funding package from Clydesdale Bank.
Border Biscuits will use the cash to add a new production line to its factory in Lanark.
The move is part of plans to grow its share of the marketplace south of the border.
The Lanark-based firm produces more than 24 types of biscuit and supplies all of the major supermarkets.
It also supplies wholesale and food service businesses, as well as independent retailers across the UK.
Border Biscuits generated a turnover of more than £14.5m in its last financial year.
In 2011 it was awarded £335,000 by the Scottish government to fund an extension to its factory and add a fully automated biscuit production line, an oven and packing equipment.
