Trusted, responsible and uncompromising
People choose us for quality they can depend on
Why Ballantynes of Walkerburn?
We work with customers from around the world, including the British military and emergency services, global corporations, and private individuals. They choose us for quality that speaks for itself in every figurine, glass, or bottle that leaves our factory – but it doesn’t stop there.
Family-owned and entirely autonomous, we’re able to protect our values at every stage of production.
As a result, you can be sure you’re working with a manufacturer you can truly believe in.
Our close-knit team includes six senior craftsmen who have worked with us for more than two decades, giving us the wealth of experience it takes to create detailed and accurate sculptures and engravings.
Customer first, staff second
Every decision we make is first driven by our duty to deliver the finest quality items to our customers. Then, we prioritise our team, paying them a living wage and providing secure employment.
We protect our reputation for incredible quality by keeping all our production in-house, all the time. When you buy from us, you can be confident your item has come directly from our factory on the banks of the River Tweed.
Beyond our ongoing reductions in waste materials, we refit our factory in 2015 to be more energy efficient. Our 30kW solar systems provides more electricity than we use, protecting the serene environment around us without compromising on production.
British-made packaging and bases
It’s not just our figurines and glassware. We source all of our bases and packaging materials from UK-based suppliers, significantly reducing our carbon footprint and feeding back into our economy.
Tradition meets modernity
Uniquely, our approach blends the traditional techniques and skills of craftspeople with modern technology including precision design using the latest CAD technology.
