COAST and Glen will add to its ex­ist­ing in­dus­trial premises in Walker Road in In­ver­ness, with the new fish and game pro­cess­ing fac­tory, which spans 2,631 sq ft within a 0.26 acre site.

The new fa­cil­ity, at Wyn­d­hill In­dus­trial Es­tate in Muir of Ord, is ex­pected to lead to a num­ber of new jobs. It was pur­chased with as­sis­tance from HSBC.

Coast and Glen sup­plies to food ser­vice cus­tomers through­out the High­lands and is­lands as well as to Miche­lin star restau- rants across the UK.

It also op­er­ates a sis­ter com­pany, Fish­box, which en­ables cus­tomers to have a reg­u­lar box of mixed fresh fish de­liv­ered next day UK wide.

Found­ing manag­ing direc­tor Mag­nus Hous­ton, who was re­cently named Scot­land’s In­sti­tute of Direc­tors Emerg­ing Direc­tor of the Year and Scot­land’s Ris­ing Star in the EY En­tre­pre­neur of the Year Awards, has am­bi­tions to grow the busi­ness and is ac­tively ex­pand­ing its cus­tomer base within the re­tail sec­tor.

Am­bi­tions to grow The new fac­tory will al­low Fish­box to ex­pand its cus­tomer

‘The new fac­tory and of­fice will not only al­low Fish­box to ex­pand its cus­tomer ac­qui­si­tion, but will free up space to let Coast and Glen con­tinue its or­ganic growth,’ he said.
