A Monikie sandstone supplier today (Friday) officially opened it’s brand new £1.2 million base cementing their position within the industry and their commitment to the area.

Denfind Stone Ltd. invited local dignitaries, friends and guests to the grand unveiling of the state of the art production centre overlooking Pitairlie Quarry outside Monikie.

Managing director of Denfind Stone Brian Binnie is looking forward to the new era of growth which this development will help make reality with production increasing by up to 50 per cent.

He said: “This is a fantastic addition to Denfind Stone and will allow us to deliver a greater standard of service to our clients as well as significantly increase our production.

“We are now in a fantastic position to expand our client base and take the company to the next level.”

Graeme Dey, the MSP for Angus South and deputy convener of the rural affairs, climate change and environment committee welcomed the development which was part-funded by the Scottish Rural Development Programme.

Mr Dey said: “I am genuinely thrilled with the opening of the new processing plant which stands as testament to the success of the Rural Development Programme.

“Although accessing the funding can be a lengthy process, witnessing the benefits it offers rural enterprises across Scotland proves it is well worth the wait.”
