Harris Finance to the four in Rutherglen

HARRIS Finance, whose commercial property division recently completed the development of two speculative industrial units at Clyde Gateway’s Rutherglen Links Business Park, has announced the purchase of a further four plots at the development.

The company bought the 2.5 acre Plot C in 2016 and has since invested £2.5 million in building two industrial/hybrid units, which have the potential to create dozens of jobs for the local community. Harris Finance has now bought the entire upper platform, where they will invest a further £4.2 million.

Rutherglen Links Business Park is already home to SPIE, a provider of multi-technical services, who occupy the top two floors of the One Rutherglen Links office building.

Ian Manson, chief executive of Clyde Gateway said, “This further private sector investment at Rutherglen Links is a real vote of confidence in the location and the wider Clyde Gateway area.  Harris Finance already has a successful track record here, with its development of Plot C, and I have no doubt that that their long term commitment to Rutherglen Links Business Park will act as a catalyst as Clyde Gateway is fast becoming a preferred location for high growth companies in manufacturing, industrial and engineering sectors.”

Ross Harris, of Harris Finance added, “We are pleased with the number of enquiries we’ve received for the first two buildings on Plot C at Rutherglen Links Business Park. Our additional commitment to develop the entire Upper Platform at Rutherglen Links is our vote of confidence in the work to transform the Clyde Gateway into the best place to do business in the city.”
