The Advanced Manufacturing Innovation District Scotland (AMIDS) will be an internationally-recognised centre for innovation, research and manufacturing.
The site is adjacent to Glasgow International Airport with direct access to Scotland’s motorway network and located less than 10 km (6 miles) from Glasgow city centre.
Located at the centre of Scotland’s largest labour catchment (1.8 million population within the Glasgow city region), AMIDS is already home to renowned international manufacturers Rolls Royce, Thermo Fisher, Peak Scientific, Terumo Aortic and Doosan Babcock.
Located next to the University of Strathclyde’s Advanced Forming Research Centre (Scotland’s only High Value Manufacturing Catapult centre), the site is also the home of the new £65m National Manufacturing Institute Scotland (NMIS) and £56m Medicines Manufacturing Innovation Centre (MMIC).
AMIDS will provide a high-quality, campus-style environment for ambitious companies investing in and using best practice to transform manufacturing processes.
Advanced manufacturing accounts for 52% of Scotland’s international exports and £595m of Scotland’s annual spend on research and development. AMIDS will make Scotland a global leader in innovation, research and advanced manufacturing.
