The Edinburgh Woollen Mill was first launched by Drew Stevenson in 1946 and was previously known as the Langholm Dyeing and Finishing Company.
At first the business only dyed yarn on a contract basis, but then stepped into retailing in 1970 when it opened its first shop.
The Edinburgh Woollen Mill is now considered the best market performer in its sector and continues to grow due to a continuous investment in acquisitions.
