I think I became aware of Coughtrie soon after buying a house in Glasgow in 1984 - as 2 of the SP10 units were fitted to the outside of the building.  I discovered happily that the firm was in Glasgow and went to buy another bigger SP10 (150W) to put over a garage after visiting the Hillington factory  (It cost £12.93 in August 1986!). I brought this one to my next house here in the South of England. I remember seeing these SP10 fittings everywhere and realised they must be the sort of good quality item specified by architects and other professionals. Pay more and get a quality item, that really lasts, and for which you can get spares years later. This suits me as someone who wants goods that do not break down within a few months, repairs things and keeps them going.  In the 1980s and 1990s this was NOT the zeitgeist at the retail level, but now I think it is becoming the proper thing to do, and rather "green"!
