Techcomp Invests in Livingston, Scotland
Techcomp Europe Ltd continues to expand their operations in Scotland with their European HQ, Manufacturing base and R&D centre.
The Group has purchased three adjacent buildings providing 30,000 square feet of assembly production, laboratory, R&D and office accommodation. Another 10,000 square feet has been leased nearby to house machining, fabrication and warehousing.
Chris O’Connor, Techcomp Europe Group CEO commented, “We invest in scientific instrument design and manufacturing for the long term. Techcomp has established European operations in France, Switzerland, Romania and The Netherlands and, despite Brexit, we continue to believe in the UK workforce and investment potential. Livingston has provided us with the specialist Engineering and Scientific skills we need, many of our staff have joined us from other European countries and happily settled in Scotland. Acquiring these high quality buildings allows us to invest in bespoke laboratory and testing facilities and utilities critical to the expansion of our Molecular Spectroscopy and Chromatography businesses”.
