Renfrewshire Council, the Scottish Government and Scottish Enterprise are seeking investors for the Advanced Manufacturing Innovation District Scotland (AMIDS).

Located next to the University of Strathclyde’s Advanced Forming Research Centre (Scotland’s only High Value Manufacturing Catapult centre) and future home to the £65m National Manufacturing Institute for Scotland and £56m Medicines Manufacturing Innovation Centre, AMIDS offers unparalleled opportunity.

Located at the centre of Scotland’s largest labour catchment (1.7m) and adjacent to established international manufacturers Rolls Royce, Thermo Fisher Scientific and Vascutek Terumo, AMIDS offers unparalleled expertise.
