Archie and Ross Hunter inside an Armadilla

A Rosewell company is set for further success after receiving business grants totalling £140,000.

Archie Hunter and his son Ross have designed a unique product called the Armadilla, which they now manufacture from a workshop beside Archie’s home.

Clad in larch and resembling an upturned boat, the Armadilla is available in various sizes for use as a garden room, office or extra space.

Thanks to support from Business Gateway, the company has secured a £130,000 Regional Selective Assistance grant from Scottish Enterprise and a £10,000 Financial Readiness Support Grant, also from Scottish Enterprise.
