Providing jobs, offering training, and making products and services at prices people can afford are all part of our Newark Products – a social enterprise that works commercially but also provides social and community benefits. We reinvest our profits into our community projects, staff costs and future developments.
We work with local housing associations and community groups on landscaping projects. These projects offer training, qualifications and work experience to local young people to help them get into work.
Made in our workshop in Port Glasgow we offer a range of different products all made by local people looking to re-train or upskill.
These range in style from handmade quaichs to a variety of home and kitchen ware, such as serving boards and other serving and storing items to display boxes. We are also able to laser print, engrave, stencil and carve your logo or text on a variety of products.
Printing & Embroidery
For your or for a club or group we can print you a t-shirt, embroider a group or corporate logo onto polo shirts and various types of workwear.
Social Value & Community Benefits
Many of the raw materials that are used to make the products come to us as are considered ‘waste’ from other industries or are donated to us. Instead of them going to landfill we use them to create the products we then sell. Our products are created by individuals on valuable work experience and skills development opportunities, these individuals might not get these chances with another employer. Our workshop staff work with these individuals to create handmade woodwork products.
