Our Managing Director, Sandy McEwen has recently been asked to consult with the Scottish Government on the Brexit implications for Scottish SMEs. Due to this he was involved in an event yesterday with one of our customers, Allied Vehicles in Glasgow, to promote the availability of a “Brexit Grant “ for SMEs in Scotland. More information can be found at prepareforbrexit.scot .
First Minister for Scotland Nicola Sturgeon said: “Businesses like Allied Vehicles and William Johnston & Company are critical to Scotland’s economy and it is unacceptable that they are facing this level of uncertainty so close to the UK leaving the EU.”
Sandy McEwen commented “ Since Brexit was announced in 2016, we have been hoping for the best but preparing for the worst. As a manufacturer we have found the Prepare for Brexit website a helpful tool for highlighting some of the issues Brexit may bring our business. Today, we are in the eye of the Brexit storm but, hopefully, this grant will help us to be in the best position possible to deal with the potential changes in the business environment.”
