Dundee industrial development tipped to help SME firms grow

SALTIRE Business Parks has started construction of sixteen units designed to provide “flexible” industrial space in Dundee.

Due for completion this summer, the developer said the units can be tailored to the requirements of potential tenants and help SME businesses to expand.

Saltire Business Parks said there is currently a lack of quality new industrial space in Dundee. The development, located off Mid Craigie Road, will support an estimated six full-time construction roles and intends to take on local apprentices in the coming months.

Alan Esson, managing director of Saltire Business Parks said, “This development will provide the quality of space necessary for business to thrive, which will deliver job opportunities and wider economic growth to the Dundee area. We are delighted that construction has now started on a development that will have a very positive effect on the local area.

“There is a lack of industrial development across eastern Scotland and we have already received high levels of interest from a number of local and national operators enquiring about the space options available, and terms have been agreed on six of the units. We want to help get businesses get up and running as easily as possible by providing quality flexible space on flexible terms.”

Saltire Business Parks is also currently delivering Elgin Business Park, the largest industrial estate under construction in the north of Scotland
