The significant investment in SOCOTEC’S Labs & Analytical business aims to provide a more modern workplace for staff, which will include upgrading internal logistics, sample reception, laboratory production, and office facilities.
Jim MacFarlane, MD for the Labs & Analytical business explains: ‘The L&A business is an extremely busy division of SOCOTEC which services a diverse range of clients. The current facilities are to be updated in keeping with a business that has a significant growth ambition. The project has been planned in detail, ensuring that we can continue to meet our clients’ needs during the works, something which we know is of critical importance.
I am delighted that this investment will provide a solid platform to expand on our market-leading services for clients, as well as extending the company’s commitment to high-quality employment in the local area, where we have a technically strong and dedicated workforce, for the foreseeable future.’
