A telecoms company based in Kirkintilloch has scored international success - winning three contracts in Russia with global companies.

The contracts won by Exchange, who have offices at Kerr Street in the town, include upgrading the telecoms systems of toy retailer Hasbro, biotechnology developer Thermo Fisher and information specialist Experian.

Managing director Tom Sime said: “This is our first work in Russia and it has not been without its challenges, particularly with the language.

“Our model involves following existing customers as they move into other countries and that is what has happened with Hasbro, Thermo Fisher and Experian.”

Exchange also has offices in Aberdeen and Oxford.
