Aberdeenshire soft drinks maker, Sangs, has been rescued from administration after US giant Cott Beverages bought it out.

The move will secure the future of all 60 employees at the firms Macduff HQ and will see its operations absorbed into Cott’s global network of soft drink, juice and water bottling plants.

It also secures the immediate future of some well known local brands, such as Deveron Spring and MacB mineral water.

Kenny Webster, Sangs former owner, said: "I've always maintained that Sangs was a company in profit, in growth, with no cash flow issue.

"We never defaulted on a loan interest or supplier payment and we received no notice of administration from the bank.

"I poured my heart and soul into that business - as a born-and-bred Scot, I did my very best to build a growing, successful company in the north-east.”
