When the United Nations was looking for a supplier of disaster relief and shelter equipment, it turned to Livingston-based Highlander Outdoor. Its range of more than 2,500 outdoor products is sold through independent retailers and chain stores across Europe. The company was set up in 1985 by chairman Bahram Golzari, 60, who took his passion for mountain climbing into product development, and it is now run by his son, managing director Ramin Golzari, 31. Export sales hit £2.5m in 2016, boosted by demand from Germany and Holland, its largest overseas markets.
