2016 marks 50 years of trading for Dustacco Engineering Ltd and 45 years of trading for Watermiser Ltd. We were delighted to celebrate the occasion on Friday 4th November with our employees, clients and business partners at a private event in Franklin & Sloane, Kilmarnock. The event, which was also attended by Provost Jim Todd, local MP Alan Brown and local councillors, featured an exhibition of memorabilia and photographs, and gave our guests an opportunity to learn more about the history of each company and the different projects undertaken over the years.

Dustacco Engineering was established in 1966 by mechanical engineer Morris Somerville, who began working from a small design studio in his Glasgow flat before relocating to Newmilns in 1972. Originally a provider of ventilation, dust control and air conditioning services, Dustacco has evolved over the years with the company now providing mechanical design, manufacture and installation services, for a range of pharmaceutical, utility and energy clients. Meanwhile Watermiser Ltd, established in 1971, is the only water cooling tower manufacturer in Scotland, supplying mainly to the food and drink sector, including a wide range of distilleries across the country.

Both companies continue to be owned and operated by the Somerville family, with Morris’ daughter Alison being the Managing Director since 2003. Proud local employers to a 60 strong workforce, we are committed to the training and development of our staff to ensure the ongoing sustainability of the businesses and employment opportunities within the local area.
