Dumfries film firm investment safeguards jobs

An investment of nearly £1m at a manufacturing plant near Dumfries will help secure more than 70 jobs and create new posts.

The funding for Dupont Teijin Films comes from Scottish Enterprise.

Business Minister Paul Wheelhouse announced the award during a visit to the factory which makes polymer film for industrial packaging. He said the investment would be a boost for staff on the site and also for the wider economy.

“Scotland has a thriving chemical sciences community and is widely recognised for the distinctive capabilities of our business base and research institutions, our international reputation and the potential for significant growth and the creation of high value jobs,” he said.

“This grant is a strong indicator of the significance the Scottish government places on both support for innovation to grow Scotland’s economy and on developing Scotland’s STEM subject specialisms.”
