Scottish funeral business invests £600,000 in 'state-of-the-art' vehicles
Fosters Family Funeral Directors, which has been operating since 2005, is also using the money to upgrade its current limousines and ambulances.
Alongside the new fleet, bespoke conversions have been applied on the firm’s vehicles, while two ambulances are currently being built and will be delivered over the coming months.
Robert MacLachlan, group chief executive, said: “We are proud to announce this significant investment into our fleet of limousines.
“The purchase of new vehicles and upgrading our current fleet will help Fosters continue to deliver the very best in funeral services, as well as ensure the comfort and safety of all passengers taking part in funeral processions.”
He added: “Allowing families the opportunity to travel together and support each other is very important to help with the grieving process, so any additional comfort we can bring to bereaved families is greatly welcomed.”
The firm said that all vehicles would continue to adhere to Scottish Government guidelines to control the spread of coronavirus, with protective screens and specialist air filtration devices included.
Current Scottish Government restrictions mean that no more than six members of the same household can travel in one limousine from one pick up address.
