Peel hosts DIT specialists
Delegation examining Clyde opportunities
A group of international investment specialists have been looking at opportunities in the west of Scotland as part of a visit organised by the Department for International Trade (DIT).
The delegation were given an overview of facilities and commercial development potential at Hunterston Port and Resource Centre (PARC) in North Ayrshire, owned and operated by Peel Ports.
The presentation at Peel Ports Group’s Scottish HQ in Glasgow aimed to equip DIT’s capital investment specialists with more knowledge about business opportunities in Scotland.
Organised by DIT in partnership with Scottish Enterprise, the visit was part of a broader goal to attract overseas financial investment into infrastructure, real estate and venture capital projects across Scotland.
The meeting with Peel Ports was part of a two day visit to Scotland by DIT international investment staff in partnership.
Hunterston Port and Resource Centre is a multi-modal centre for exporting, importing, processing and distributing a wide range of resources that support economic growth in Scotland, the UK and Europe.
The port estate combines a deep water facility, rail and motorway connections and 800 acres of development land, making it one of Scotland’s key economic hubs.
Douglas K. Coleman, programme director at Peel Ports said: “Our ambition is to see manufacturers, power generators, recyclers, importers and exporters come together at Hunterston PARC to create a model for industrial cooperation and innovation.”
