New Factory For The Future Announced

14 December 2017 

A new £65 million 'Factory for the Future' will be built on the banks of the Clyde at Inchinnan, right next door to Glasgow Airport.

The National Manufacturing Institute for Scotland (NMIS) aims to help manufacturing businesses throughout Scotland become world leaders in innovation, and SDS is playing a pivotal role in ensuring skills and training are integral to the project from the outset.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon announced the new facility during a visit to Rolls-Royce. Speaking after a meeting with some of Scotland's leading manufacturing companies, as well as key project partners including SDS, the First Minister said:

"This exciting facility will be an industry-led international centre of manufacturing expertise. Research, industry and the public sector will work together to transform skills, productivity and innovation, attracting investment and making Scotland a global leader in advanced manufacturing.

"It will help companies right across Scotland embrace new manufacturing techniques, support cutting edge research and help to further develop the skills of our workforce. The manufacturing jobs of the future offer exciting and rewarding careers for young people. We want to inspire them to work in this sector and revive Scotland's proud tradition of manufacturing and engineering."
