Pre­ci­sion and speed spell suc­cess

Campbeltown Courier - - ARGYLL ENTERPRISE WEEK -

Who would sus­pect that that a small, Ar­gyll town would have a close con­nec­tion with the block­bust­ing jug­ger­naut that is Harry Pot­ter? The fact is, Pre­ci­sion Photo­fab­ri­ca­tion Devel­op­ments Ltd (PPD Ltd), a fam­ily-run busi­ness based in Lochgilp­head, made the stun­ning and del­i­cate wings for the Snitch, amongst other props, in the movie fran­chise. Formed more than 30 years ago by Jean and Ian McCar­tan, PPD Ltd is now owned and man­aged by their sons, John and Stu­art. The busi­ness has grown through at­ten­tion to de­tail, com­pet­i­tive costs, and by treat­ing ev­ery cus­tomer with the same care and re­spect. The busi­ness ex­ports through­out the world and sup­plies many high pro­file com­pa­nies and also the in­di­vid­ual hob­by­ist. It pro­vides qual­ity etched parts for model rail­ways, ar­chi­tec­tural mod­els, sculp­tures, jew­ellery, en­gi­neer­ing pro­to­types, ve­neered prod­ucts and, of course, those amaz­ing TV and film props. These props are sup­plied both within the UK and over­seas and, given the fast-paced na­ture of the in­dus­try, fre­quently have to be de­liv­ered within one to two days of the or­der.
