Cariescan and Goals get good news in the USA
The business headlines are quite rightly being dominated by the demise of Globespan.
It is a situation affecting thousands of people not least the 800 or so who have lost their jobs just before Christmas.
There are also a number of suppliers to the airline who will be counting the cost of a large customer going out of business.
But away from that awful news there have been a couple of positive glimmers with two very different Scottish firms confirming expansion plans in the USA.
This will allow the firm to court a distributor and opens up the massive dental diagnostics market there.
It builds on the £4m contract it sealed with Clark Dental earlier in the year.
Meanwhile five-a-side football operator Goals has secured its first centre in Los Angeles.
Construction will start in 2010 with the complex due to open before the World Cup in the summer.
The small sided football market has held up well in the UK during the recession and remains largely untapped in the US.

Goals will be one of the first operators to introduce the popular five-a-side concept and if it takes off it could prove to be an extremely profitable venture.
