Our History

Bisset & Ross was established by my grandfather James Bisset and his associate before WW1 to service the local fishing fleet. My own father took over the whole business lock stock and sewing machine just before WW1 and continued to meet the needs of the fishing community but additionally Royal Navy vessels being built and repaired at our world famous Hall Russell and Lewis shipyards. I started my own apprenticeship in 1953 and worked alongside my elder brother and together we took over the business in due course. This was just before the oil and gas industry arrived in Aberdeen and changed our market.

Today, we pride ourselves on being at the forefront of this industry in the manufacture of quality covers as well as offering a wide range of modern fabrics and solutions to meet the varied needs of our trusted on and offshore clients whilst maintaining traditional craftsmanship skills to provide a sail making and repair service for the North of Scotland.
