UK computer manufacturer Tiny is bucking the industry trend by creating hundreds of jobs with a new factory in Scotland.
The company is expected to announce the opening of the plant near Prestwick as part of a relocation operation from Asia. The new facility will manufacture PCs for the UK market, while products for the overseas market will continue to be manufactured in Hong Kong.
Although it is still unconfirmed how many jobs the plant will create, the announcement is certainly encouraging, according to Danny Carrigan, national electronics officer for the Amalgamated Engineering and Electrical Union.
Carrigan was quoted in The Independent as saying: "This is good news for the beleaguered Scottish economy and, in particular, the high technology sector."
Tiny already employs more than 1000 people in the UK and a further 2000 overseas. The company sold more than 400,000 PCs on the UK market last year, up 50,000 from 1999.
