Dates of existence


Daniel Buchanan & Sons Ltd were manufacturers of leathercloth and PVC coated paper based in Prestonpans. By 1965 the company was insolvent. As the firm was a major supplier to Low Brothers, the Don and Low group were reluctant to allow it to go bankrupt and so took over its running. In about 1967 Buchanan & Sons was linked, for administrative purposes, with another Don company, T. Gaunt (Rainwear) Ltd which specialised in the making of PVC garments. The Buchanan name seems to have ceased to be used around 1984, a period when Don and Low underwent internal restructuring. T. Gaunt seems to have been subsumed by Don and Low (Packaging) Ltd at by this same time.
