MARINE Products Scotland (MPS) managing director Angus MacKenzie has died following a short illness, the company announced this morning.
Born and raised on the Isle of Lewis, MacKenzie founded MPS in 2002. Working within the seafood industry for more than 30 years, he was a pioneering figure, with experience in many species before specialising in salmon.
Glasgow based MPS is a leading producer of luxury Scottish and specially imported salmon, with experience across the retail, wholesale, export and food service sectors.
MacKenzie and his team took the company from strength to strength in a competitive industry, while continuing to stay true to the core island tradition and heritage of the company, said a spokeswoman.
Mary Bisset, the firm’s resource planning manager, said: ‘Our deepest sympathies are with Angus’ family – wife Marion, daughters Emma and Rebecca, devoted mum, brother Alasdair, sister Mairi and much loved nieces. We are doing all we can to support them at this tragic time.’
She added that the ethos and foundations laid by MacKenzie were proving invaluable in allowing the business to continue as he would have wished, with customer focus, attention to detail and excellence at the forefront, delivered by a team of whom he was extremely proud.
‘As Angus would have wished, our absolute priority is to continue to run MPS with the same pride and attention to detail that Angus had himself. Our dedication to the provision of excellent service to all our customers will continue to be paramount.’
A memorial service to celebrate MacKenzie’s life will be held at 12pm on Monday, August 20, at Òran Mór, Byres Road, Glasgow G12 8QX.
