The Courier & Advertiser (Perth and Perthshire Edition) - - COMMENT -

A fur­ther phase in the large mod­erni­sa­tion pro­gramme by Jute In­dus­tries Ltd was an­nounced yes­ter­day. The firm is to spend £450,000 on re-equip­ping its Dou­glas­field Mill, built only 11 years ago. Work will start in two months’ time. The an­nounce­ment co­in­cided with a press visit to the group’s Man­hat­tan Works to view the re­sult of a 15-month £700,000 mod­erni­sa­tion scheme just com­pleted there. Man­hat­tan now claims the ti­tle of the world’s most mod­ern jute mill.
