Four former Bo’ness Academy pupils have been building a Glasgow 2014 legacy which will stand the test of time.

William Murray, Alex Brown, Davie Smith and Peter O’Neil have delivered the windows which more than 6000 athletes will look through as they compete in Glasgow in July.

All four have worked in the Scandinavian building products industry for 20 years. And they now all work for NorDan UK Ltd, which manufactures high quality timber windows in eight factories in Europe.

William, a commercial manager in London, joined the team this week.

Managing director Alex, a fellow Bo’ness man, said: “To work with friends is challenging but greatly fosters trust in our team.

“William brings a wealth of experience in the industry to our sales and project management effort in the London and South East area.

“I’m delighted to welcome him to our team.”

William will work hand in hand with fellow Bo’nesians Davie Smith, UK logistics manager and Central Scotland general manager Peter O’Neil.

All four men are still based in Bo’ness so are delighted to be playing an integral part in the 2014 Games.

Alex added: “One of our biggest recent projects was delivering all the windows into the Commonwealth Games athletes’ village.

“The 750 homes built will be part of the legacy of the Games, becoming affordable housing after July.

“I’ve always been inspired by entrepreneurship and business strategy with a goal to be market leader and I have achieved that.”
