Nancy Bryson, whose company Bryson Tractors Ltd has been located at Caldwellside for nearly 20 years, said: “This is a vibrant industrial estate with a diverse range of businesses, supplying a huge variety of products.

“Many are complementary, where you can buy your building and plumbing supplies, get your vehicle fixed or buy the tools to do the job yourself.

“We love when people call in for a visit, often they are surprised by the range of products that we stock.”

Antonia Pompa, Discover Lanark manager, explained the need for the new website.

She said: “The Caldwellside area is enormously important to Lanark’s economy, delivering a range of services and excellent local employment opportunities.

“Many of the businesses on the estate are open to both the public and trade. The range of businesses is remarkable including companies specialising in manufacturing, technology, plant and equipment, storage, retail, logistics, auto repairs and much more.”
