The Oban Times - - News -

A WARE­HOUSE for a health sup­ple­ment has opened in Breas­clete on the Isle of Lewis.

The BASF Pharma (Cal­lan­ish) Ltd was of­fi­cially opened by Na h-Eileanan an Iar [ West­ern Isles] MP An­gus Bren­dan MacNeil on Fri­day June 30.

Mr MacNeil said: ‘I am de­lighted and hon­oured to have been asked to of­fi­cially open the im­pres­sive ware­house fa­cil­ity at BASF Pharma (Cal­lan­ish) Ltd.

‘This fa­cil­ity will help cope with the de­mand for the omega 3 fatty acid prod­ucts which are pro­duced at the fac­tory in Breas­clete.

‘It is heart­en­ing to see the con­tin­ued growth of this com­pany which, with a work­force of 73 peo­ple, is a valu­able em­ployer, and the fi­nan­cial sup­port from High­lands and Is­lands En­ter­prise is wel­comed.

‘BASF Pharma (Cal­lan­ish) is a world leader in lipid chro­matog­ra­phy, with world lead­ing break­throughs ac­tu­ally made at the fac­tory at Breas­clete – some­thing the work­force can be very proud of, but also we in the wider com­mu­ni­ties can be proud of too, as it shows when the is­lands are in­volved and try, they are as good as any­where, if not bet­ter.

‘I ap­plaud the staff at BASF Pharma (Cal­lan­ish) Ltd for the im­por­tant work they do and I wish them ev­ery suc­cess for the fu­ture.’

At the open­ing, from left to right, are Chris Scar­rott, site man­ager of BASF Pharma, Lorne Cr­erar, chair­man of HIE, An­gus MacNeil MP and Richard Carter, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of BASF UK.
