Dawson Downie Lamont Patternshop
Dawson Downie Lamont is now based in Glenrothes and has been for the last 20 years. It isn’t every Glenrothes company that can claim a proud history stretching back all of 100 years but that’s exactly what Dawson Downie Lamont can claim. The engineering company marked its centenary in 2005.
The company was founded in Glasgow in 1905 to supply the then thriving shipyards on the River Clyde with pumps and its success caused a move to bigger premises in Clydebank a few years later. During the forties the company made munitions and also diversified into pump making for the oil industry, a move which was to prove astute given the development of that sector in the years ahead. Its ability to diversify was particularly useful when the decline of the shipbuilding industry prompted the move to Glenrothes in 1996.
Diversity is one of the keys to DDL’s longevity, and not content with their success in pump manufacture they have also built a successful business in the design and construction of customized cases and packaging for the transportation of industrial products worldwide and also pattern making for industrial castings. Dawson Downie Lamont can boast both a fine heritage and a thoroughly modern service.
Since the move to Glenrothes in Fife working in a thriving industrial estate Dawson Downie took advantage of its years’ experience in the packaging sector and started to offer packing solutions firstly to all the heavy engineering companies and over the years has offered companies all over various sectors packing solutions and now have a thriving business in this sector.
