Scotland’s innovation magnet attracts global tech firms

The National Manufacturing Institute Scotland (NMIS), one of the UK’s fastest growing manufacturing research and development organisations, is today welcoming its first group of official members from around the global manufacturing, engineering and technology sectors.

The NMIS Group, based at the heart of the Advanced Manufacturing Innovation District Scotland (AMIDS) in Renfrewshire has attracted investment, commitment and support from US tech trailblazer, Infor; oil and gas giant Baker Hughes along with seven other major manufacturing related firms: Fanuc, ATS Global, Sandvik, Skyreal, Hybrid Manufacturing Technologies, Beckhoff and Nikken.

The companies are the first to sign-up to the NMIS membership programme which will see them work together to innovate, access world leading expertise and technical capability and form a supportive network to ultimately tackle the global manufacturing challenges of tomorrow.

Infor, a global leader in business cloud software, is investing in the NMIS Digital Factory to help accelerate the adoption of smart technologies to drive step-change improvements in UK productivity, digital skills and sustainability.

The partnership with NMIS will bring the global manufacturing experience of Infor, along with its cutting edge data-driven solutions, to enable UK companies – from OEMs to smaller supply chain companies – to maintain their competitive edge through the adoption of smart technologies.
