Fochabers-based pet accessory company, Dogrobes is helping to support two permanent jobs at Haven PTS in Larbert near Falkirk in Scotland by using the company to manufacture its popular dog drying coats.
Haven is part of Momentum and the wider Rehab Group, a not-for-profit organisation providing rehabilitation, training and care services for disabled and socially excluded people throughout the UK.
Haven operates from a number of key sites across Scotland, delivering services to a client list ranging from international blue chip firms to local businesses.
Dogrobes uses a team of “talented” and up and coming designers to design their exclusive collection and offer a range of complementary dog accessories to go with the Dogrobes including snoods to dry the dog’s head, neck and ears.
The company has also just recently introduced its new gauntlets which are worn on the hands and help to dry the dog’s legs and paws.
Margaret Reynolds owner of Dogrobes said: “Haven PTS met all our requirements. They manufacture to a high quality standard, have a skilled workforce in the textile industry and they are able to produce the quantity that we require.
“We are very proud that Dogrobes carry the Made in Britain standard and although it costs us more to manufacture in the UK.”
Shea added: “We are delighted that we are able to keep the manufacturing process in this country and support a business that provides meaningful jobs, on-going training and development opportunities for people with disabilities and those marginalised in society. The Made in Britain standard gives prestige to our product range.”
