SEALING WAX MANUFACTURERS
Sealing Wax Manufacturers Since 1752
George Waterstons was established with sealing wax works in premises at Dunbar Close off the High Street in 1752. The sealing wax works later moved into Duncans Chocolate Factory in Beaverhall Road, then around 1989 moved to premises in a yard across the road from the Chocolate Factory in Beaverhall Road. In 1994 we were manufacturing about 90lbs of sealing wax per day from our factory in Beaverhall Road. About 70% of the production was exported, mainly to USA and Hong Kong. We also had a large store and works in Logie Green Road and a stationery and gift shop at the corner of George Street and Hanover Street.
Sealing wax was produced in two sizes small without string and large with string. Blocks of rosin and shellac flakes and some colouring material were used to produce the sealing wax. The ingredients were mixed and heated then poured into moulds for string to be added.
It is still produced the exact same way, poured by hand and finished by hand.
