Ossean is based in the historic village of Charlestown, in the ancient kingdom of Fife, once the heart of Scotland. Charlestown was built by Charles Elgin as a small village to house the workers employed in coal, iron ore and limestone mining and in the lime processing kilns of the Elgin estate.
By 1775, Charlestown was one of the most important industrial centres in Scotland processing the limestone mined locally into lime for use in agriculture. Iron was used to manufacture large salt pans where sea water was evapourated to produce salt. Coal, salt and quicklime were transported by rail and ships to other ports throughout Scotland.

Situated within Scotlands Silicon Glen and about 40 minutes from Edinburgh Airport, Charlestown provided an ideal setting for a state of the art company built on the rock solid foundation at the heart of the Scottish industrial revolution.
