A THRIVING manufacturer is welcoming customers through the gates of its new facility in Lochgelly.

All Seasons Outdoor Living is a maker of bespoke metal gates, railings and handrails, and has now moved into a large unit at Avenue Industrial Estate.

John Mckenzie, owner, has many years of experience in the metal fabrication industry across many sectors in Edinburgh and Fife.

In June 2021, he along with his partner Deborah, decided to take the plunge and open their own business and All Seasons Outdoor Living was born.

John commented: “We have been overwhelmed by the response to the services we provide.

"Not only do we produce traditional metal fabrication products but offer professional services in design and installation of stainless steel glass balustrades, which are proving very popular.

"To accommodate the growth in the business, we saw the need to expand into larger premises and the location of the Avenue Industrial Estate in Lochgelly suits our needs perfectly.

"We provide a truly personal service and take great pride in our small family business and do everything we can to get it right for our customers.

"We work with great care and attention to detail when fabricating all of our products, sourcing only the best metals and components from reputable suppliers.”

As a client of Business Gateway Fife, adviser, Karen Cassells was able to support and advise the couple during their business journey.

Karen said: “We have been able to secure an Upskilling Grant for the business so John and Deborah can start training.

"They have now taken on an apprentice and are having new signage done and livery for the company vehicles.

"We hope to access a Net Zero grant for them so they can purchase new state of the art equipment, used in the metal fabrication industry, compliant with HSE guidelines, for the purpose of reducing emissions and purifying the air.

"This would bring benefits, not only to the environment, but also to working conditions for all employees at All Seasons Outdoor Living.”
