Preserving the UK’s industry leading role in the medicines manufacturing sector
The UK and Scottish Governments announced in 2018 that Inchinnan, next to Glasgow Airport, will be the location of the UK’s Medicines Manufacturing Innovation Centre (MMIC). The £56 million project will be delivered by Innovate UK, responding to an identified market demand to maintain innovation in the medicines manufacturing sector and preserve the UK's industry-leading role.
Our Glasgow economics and planning teams led the site selection process on behalf of the client. We identified potential locations by understanding occupier requirements, the offers of competitive locations, and focusing on locations which would have maximum strategic economic impact. This site selection not only required knowledge of investment propositions promoted elsewhere, but also where the UK can gain competitive advantage.
Our analysis generated a heatmap of the UK, highlighting areas performing well against our critical considerations. The remaining sites were evaluated against a weighted scoring system based on various key factors.
The chosen site at Inchinnan will see the MMIC being delivered as part of the Advanced Manufacturing Innovation District (Scotland) (AMIDS), a city deal funded initiative.
