Scotland has long since been at the forefront of world-class engineering and today this growing sector includes a booming technology sector – growing at one and a half times faster than the overall economy – oil and gas, transportation, aerospace and defence.
Perth and the wider region sits at the forefront of many of these developments and counts a number of award-winning industry leaders amongst the companies located in the area. From the mechanical and electrical experience of Edwards Engineering, to the niche expertise offered by Merlin MD, there is a benchmark of excellence setting standards and driving ambition.
This is supported and enhanced in no small way by the specialist Aeronautical and Aircraft Engineering opportunities offered by UHI Perth. This multimillion-pound investment is an excellent example of the innovation infrastructure that Perth can offer.
By encouraging universities and innovation labs to collaborate with companies specialising in manufacturing, environmental and agricultural developments, oil and gas and aviation, Perth can secure its place at the forefront of this exciting sector as it moves into the future.
The Business Growth Team is interested in speaking to established engineering businesses who are seeking to expand or who wish to take advantage of the competitive commercial rates and unrivalled location Perth and wider regions offers.
