Advanced Manufacturing Innovation District Scotland

The Advanced Manufacturing Innovation District Scotland is led by Renfrewshire Council in partnership with Scottish Enterprise and Scottish Government.

The district – the only one of its kind in Scotland – will be internationally-recognised for advanced manufacturing, leading innovation and research and driving sustainable growth in the Scottish economy.

At its heart is Netherton Campus, a 52-hectare site next to Glasgow Airport which will be home to the National Manufacturing Institute Scotland and the Medicines Manufacturing Innovation Centre.

The campus will provide a high-quality environment that supports healthy working, fosters collaboration and promotes sustainability. With the potential for up to 1.6million square feet of commercial floor space, it offers significant flexible development opportunities

Fully developed, the district has the potential to attract up to 6000 jobs and deliver an annual economic injection of £535million.

Netherton Campus sits side-by-side with world-leading manufacturers and advanced manufacturing research facilities at established business parks at Westway – home to the Lightweight Manufacturing Centre – and Inchinnan, a base for leading engineering, research and life science companies.
