Michelin Scotland Innovation Parc has welcomed its first tenant, MEP Technologies.
MSIP, a joint venture between Michelin, Dundee City Council and Scottish Enterprise, is a world-class Innovation Parc in Dundee for sustainable mobility and low carbon energy.
MEP Technologies designs and manufactures high technology battery systems for portable industrial storage and automotive electric vehicle systems. It has relocated from its existing Dundee premises to accommodate the growth of its business. It initially brings 10 jobs to the Innovation Parc, with plans to create up to 10 new jobs at MSIP over the next two years.
“Today’s announcement of our first tenant at MSIP is a big mark of progress for us, on what marks the two-year anniversary of the announcement to close the Michelin Dundee factory.
“MEP Technologies is a great fit with MSIP, and demonstrates we have a strong offer to companies in the sustainable mobility and low carbon energy industries. Our first tenant is the first of many. I’m excited about today’s news, but also what the next 12 months will bring.”Greig Coull, CEO of MSIP.
“We are really pleased to now be a part of the Michelin Scotland Innovation Parc community. The parc is already attracting some really successful low carbon technology companies and some really innovative new technology companies too. I can’t endorse the initiative enough and praise the support of Michelin, Scottish Enterprise and Dundee City Council.”Stuart Morrison, managing director of MEP Technologies.
