R&W Scott has a long & successful history within Carluke dating back to 1880, and it's our ambition to continue this success. Our Carluke factory has a team of over 80 people, many of whom are local to Carluke, and who work together to provide our wide range of products to customers all over the UK and internationally.
We firmly believe that our people are key to the ongoing success of our business. We're fortunate that the majority of our talented colleagues have stayed with us for many years (some have worked here for more than 40!) and many have relatives going back generations who’ve worked in the ‘jam works’. We have over 600 years of combined service which brings a wealth of experience and knowledge of our products and kit across a range of departments.
In 2018 the business went through a Management Buyout led by the firm’s MD John Easton along with fellow directors Stephen Currie and Michael Hewitt.
John Easton, Managing Director R&W Scott Ltd said:
“I am delighted our team has acquired ownership of R&W Scott where I have worked for over 12 years. We are recognised as a leading supplier in our sector and we are committed to growing the business further and cementing our position within the industry. We have several exciting innovative new products planned for the future. Real Good Food have been a supportive owner over the years, however this MBO provides a strong platform from which we can really accelerate our growth plans and thrive as an autonomous business from our Carluke base.”
We are proud to be a Real Living Wage employer. This was a commitment we made to our employees when completing the Management Buyout and implemented shortly after which meant a wage increase of over 10% for some of our colleagues at the time.
The real Living Wage allows people the opportunity to provide for their families and plan for the future. It can mean the difference between surviving and thriving.
