Drugs giant GlaxoSmithKline to invest in its Montrose plant

22/11/2013 by


Finance Minister John Swinney will announce details of the investment at the company’s plant in the Angus town along with senior executives from GSK.

The investment is another vote of confidence in the company’s Scottish operations 18 months after GSK announced plans to invest £100 million increasing capacity and creating around 100 jobs at its plants at Montrose and Irvine in North Ayrshire.

“It’s another sign of our continuing commitment to the plants and the people that we have here. We think they play a very important role and we’re going to give them more things to do,” said chief financial officer Simon Dingemans in an exclusive interview.

He added: “We expect both plants to be playing a very important role for many years to come.”
