INDUSTRYNEWS MARK KICKS OFF NEW SHOWROOM FOR COLIN TOUGH JOINERY Colin Tough Joinery marked the launch of its new showroom and workshop facilities with an open day event held at its base in Kintore, Inverurie. Supported by Profile 22 fabricator Merlin Network (Scotland), business owners Colin and Heather Tough were also joined by Aberdeen FC defender, Mark Reynolds who performed the official opening.

Established 12 years ago as a sole-trading operation, Colin and Heather have worked hard during that time to develop the business; it now employs four full-time members of staff including an apprentice, and is supported by a strong and loyal customer base. The strength of this relationship was evident on the day with around 35 local joiners, builders, plumbers and electricians joining the celebrations. Colin said: “Having Mark here gave the opening a real sense of occasion. He was also happy to autograph various items which went down well, including my special issue Cup final shirt! And everyone had a good look at the FS70 windows on display as well as our new door selection.” Colin Tough Joinery: 01467 632380. Merlin Network (Scotland): 01383 821182.
