One of Aberdeen’s oldest family run companies, James Cordiner & Son – Timber Merchant, has seen its managing director be appointed as the new President of the Aberdeen Royal Warrant Holders Association.
The Aberdeen Association of Royal Warrant Holders came into being in 1871, some 23 years after Queen Victoria first came to Aberdeenshire.
Royal Warrants are a mark of recognition to those who have supplied goods or services to the households of Her Majesty The Queen, His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh or HRH The Prince of Wales for at least five years and have an ongoing relationship.
The area served by the Aberdeen association, which has approximately 50 members, has also been extended to include Speyside, Angus and North Perthshire.
Stuart Cordiner said: “It was a great honour to be awarded a Royal Warrant from Her Majesty the Queen last year and it is a particular privilege to serve as President of the Aberdeen Association in the year of Her Majesty’s 90th Birthday.
“As the people of Deeside will tell you the Royal family are frequent visitors to this beautiful part of the world and I look forward to continuing to strengthen the link between local businesses and the royal household at Balmoral over the coming months.”
