Scotland the brave
A BOLD property move by a Lanarkshire company is intended to pave the way for an innovative new manufacturing plant that would give Scotland a lead over the rest of the UK. The £100m turnover construction and development firm CCG - which already employs 600 people from its base in Cambuslang - has revealed plans to expand its off-site manufacturing expertise into another technology. It has bought a new 122,000 sq ft production plant called Titan at Eurocentral for £4.15m, where it is proposing to establish a factory manufacturing cross laminated timber (CLT). The company’s existing semi-automated off-site facilities at Glasgow East Investment Park already push the boundaries of sustainable construction, with the 130,000 sq ft operation capable of producing up to 3000 closed panel buildings a year, often complete with value added features such as insulation, doors, windows and external claddings in brick or render.
