Two more Edinburgh Trams FIXed

  • FIX-Tram-crsmith
  • FIX CR Smith New Trams in Edinburgh.

Whenever we are in Edinburgh, it’s always great to see one of our branded trams as part of our Window to Scotland campaign, which we launched last summer.

For each us, it’s tricky to pick out a favourite image as each one is so visually striking. One minute the Kelpies is the favourite, then it switches to the cheeky looking meerkats at Blair Drummond, then to a golfer at St Andrews.

Because these images have made such an impact and made people smile, we’ve decided to sponsor two more Edinburgh Trams, bringing the total number of CR Smith trams up to 20.

This time around, the new tram designs feature our FIX side of the business, which is popular with residents in Edinburgh, due to many properties being Listed Buildings or in Conservation Areas.

FIX from CR Smith does exactly what it says on the tin – they fix products installed by anyone no matter the age. Whether it’s upgrading your conservatory roof, replacing glazed units, or repairing the hardware, you can get your home to once again look and function as it should.
