While the gyms and playing fields of Glasgow maybe awash with the logos of the big brands endorsed by global superstars, bowling greens across the world are graced by Taylor Bowls made from start to finish at the factory in the East End of Glasgow.

In two years time bowls will be one of the sports featured at the Commonwealth Games, and while the events may be staged at Kelvingrove in the West End, the East End firm will undoubtedly have a major presence on the greens.
Taylor Bowls is a success exporting around the world thanks to the hard working staff and careful management down through the years, and they should be a model for all aspiring entrepreneurs.
