Keela Supply Clothing to Blockbuster Movie

Eagle-eyed viewers watching the recent blockbuster, Calibre, will have noticed that the main character, Jack Lowden, was decked out in Keela clothing. And, it wasn't just in front of the screen that Keela's country jackets, fleeces and waterproof trousers were worn - the production team also donned the award-winning outdoor wear.

This is just one of the Glenrothes-based business' successes. Its technical clothing makes regular appearances on BBC's Casualty, whilst it has also won a new contract with Scottish Natural Heritage.

Keela is investing - its research and development team has been bolstered with the appointment of two new members of staff. The hope is to get products to market quicker, whilst producing new and improved samples for the tendering process. It is also investing in IT and its manufacturing software to improve efficiencies.

Sam Fernando, Director of Keela, and a recent graduate of Fife Council Economic Development's Leadership Programme, commented: "We're investing in the business, looking at ways to improve efficiencies and are continuously improving our product offering. We've secured new contracts and seeing our products on the big screen was a highlight in what has been a successful year."
