a product of India Tyre and Rubber Co, of Inchinnan, Renfrew, Scotland.

1927 India Tyres purchased the Inchinnan site to house their tyre factory.

The business was prosperous and houses were built in Allands Avenue and India Drive to accommodate the 2,500 employees of the tyre factory.

1930 India Tyres commissioned the Art Deco office block, strategically located in front of the mill building for optimum visibility from the busy Edinburgh to Greenock through-road.

The building was used for its intended purpose for half a century before its closure.
