An Aberdeen furniture workshop which employs staff with disabilities has won a three-year contract to supply beds to the Queen.

Glencraft closed last year with the loss of more than 50 jobs.

However, oil firm Production Services Network (PSN) stepped in and sought Scottish government support to breath new life into the factory.

Glencraft urged people buying beds to consider the organisation if they were good enough for the Queen.

The organisation previously supplied furniture to the Royal Family for decades, much of it to Balmoral Castle.

Glencraft operations manager Andy Laing said: “To have been re-awarded the Royal Warrant is a great honour and signals the strength of our business and the quality of our products.

“There is no doubt the last 12 months have been incredibly tough and we are still at the start of a long journey but this good news comes as a real boost to the business.

“You never know, we might even supply Prince William and Kate Middleton with a bed as a wedding gift from Glencraft.”
