Who We Are
Scotland’s Bravest Manufacturing Co. is an exciting new social enterprise situated in the Erskine Veterans Village Estate in Bishopton, Renfrewshire.
Our location has been famous for supporting Armed Forces Veterans since the darkest days of WW1, when many service personnel returned from conflict needing lifelong care and support. Today, the Estate is a vibrant Veteran community providing accommodation and care for Veterans in a village environment.
Our new commercially viable factory boasts state-of-the art technology and will provide jobs and support to those brave men and women adjusting to life outside the military. Some may be learning to live with an injury or disability, others may need support adapting to civilian life.
The factory is competing for contracts in the private and public sectors. The model is based on Britain’s Bravest Manufacturing Company in Kent also a division of Royal British Legion Industries (RBLI).
Products include signs and panels, as well as high-quality digital printing using the latest technology.
Erskine also has bold new plans for apartments on the same site so many Veterans will be able to live and work on the same site and enjoy purpose-built accommodation for themselves and their dependents.
Royal British Legion Industries (RBLI) is the UK’s leading charity helping ex-Armed Forces personnel into employment. Established in 1919 to help soldiers returning from World War One, RBLI have a proud heritage as a military charity, with an expertise in supporting those Veterans who are wounded, injured and sick.
RBLI is keen to replicate their successful delivery models wherever possible, in order to create the maximum impact and help the most beneficiaries. Scotland’s Bravest Manufacturing Company (SBMC) has been born with this great ethos in mind, as a division of RBLI, SBMC holds the same values in supporting Veterans into employment.
