Sam Russell MBE 2001

Sam RussellSam Russell is a quiet and unassuming entrepreneur who manufactures sheet metal, plastic and cable components for many household items such as PCs, televisions and telephones.  Born in the Borders, Sam began contracting work for the world's leading computer companies before setting up Simclar, which now operates factories in Texas, North Carolina, Mexico and China.  He admires the America "can-do" attitude to work.

While Sam laments the loss of manufacturing in Scotland - a victim of global pricing - he remains committed to keeping the high-value design work in Fife.

He supports a number of mental health charities in Scotland.
