The first firing of the new kiln was of 72 mugs for displaying at the Highland Trade Fair in Scotland. The gamble paid off as orders started to flow in, skilled operatives were
recruited and production began. Dunoon was soon selling mugs globally to quality retailers worldwide.
In 1982 a new factory in Stone, Staffordshire, the heart of the ceramic industry was opened and under Gordon's management Dunoon developed a policy of working with
numerous designers and artists to constantly update its ranges with new designs and unique mug shapes in both Stoneware and Fine Bone China.
Dunoon uses slip casting to guarantee a fine, lightweight mug; a method still used today. Dunoon is very loyal to its Scottish roots producing ranges dedicated to Scottish themes and customers. The growth in popularity of speciality coffee and teas has led to increasing sales and demand for both finer quality and unusual mug design.
