Adam Purves was born in 1840 at Gildiesgreen in the Ettrick Valley. He served his apprenticeship as a blacksmith at Lindean Smithy, near Selkirk and after working in Hawick and Galashiels he started on his own account at 20 Bank Street, Galashiels in 1879.

We also opperate petrol stations throughout the Lothian’s & Borders, interestingly Adam Purves are pioneers in the fuel business as they introduced the first electric fuel pump back in 1936, this replacing the traditional hand pump, Adam Purves also introduced a new concept to the Borders by opening the first self service filling station at Wilderhaugh back in the early eighties, also just announced for 2012, the first all electric car is available for viewing and purchase from our Tweedbank showrooms, we call this the i-MiEV.
