LumiraDx boosts Scottish healthcare job count
There will be 200 R&D jobs
A company supplying Covid-19 test kits to the NHS is to create more jobs in Scotland than initially revealed last month.
LumiraDx is expected to create 510 roles at three sites as part of plans to establish a global health research, development and manufacturing hub.
It was revealed last month that the life sciences company would create 300 posts, but today it said its £78 million investment into its current Scottish operations could see the total payroll rise to 750 over the next three years.
Supported by a £15 million grant from Scottish Enterprise, the jobs will be at sites in Stirling, Inverness and a new facility under construction at Eurocentral, near Glasgow.
