Led by Renfrewshire Council, in partnership with Scottish Government and Scottish Enterprise, AMIDS will enable manufacturers to tap into cutting edge research and access transformational technologies.

At its heart is Netherton Campus, the natural choice for bold, brave companies to locate to. Confirmed home of the National Manufacturing Institute Scotland and the Medicines Manufacturing Innovation Centre, each boasting specialist skills and expertise, while the campus offers room to grow, a healthy working environment and unrivalled access, in the centre of Scotland’s largest workforce and connections by air, sea and land.

  • Design and build opportunities
  • Flexible sized development plots for lease or purchase
