Electronics company Plexus has opened a new design and manufacturing facility which will support 130 new jobs in Scotland.

Plexus, which makes electronics for product realisation products, has spent £9 million on its new design and manufacturing facility in Livingston, Scotland. The building is split between a 15,500 sq. ft. design centre and a 47,000 sq. ft. manufacturing site and will support design, prototyping and manufacturing activities under one roof.

The new facility was officially opened by John Swinney, MSP and cabinet secretary for finance, employment and sustainable growth.

Mr Swinney said: “Plexus are demonstrating themselves as a key player in the technology and engineering sector and a significant contributor to the Scottish economy.

“The Scottish Government is committed to the continuing development and support of the technology and engineering sector that currently employs around 150,000 people.”

“We acknowledge the hard work and commitment from companies like Plexus in demonstrating that Scotland has proven itself to be a location where the outward-looking high-technology business can thrive,” he added.
