Scottish Enterprise Account Manager Carri Cusick and Brian Frame coincided in their involvement with Rautomead about three years ago.
"The R&D side has been absolutely instrumental in changing the way forward for us," says Brian
explains: "We have created a division to attract new development opportunities from both home and abroad.
Germany for example is now like a 'home town'.
We currently have a team going to Bangkok, we attended trade shows in the US this year, and have already attended one in Dubai.
We use these opportunities to meet with prospective customers, as well as highlighting and showcasing any new product offerings we have developed.
Scottish Development International
, through SE, has been really helpful in making this happen and also introducing us to networks of potential business such at UKTI and CBBC."
explains: "We need a presence at specific events such as metallurgy conventions or seminars on high speed rail networks to develop new markets.
SE has been very supportive in enabling this.

"SE Account Managers, SDI
