A Scottish firm has spent close to £2 million on acquiring new premises in South Lanarkshire.

Edison Group's new facility is located in Langlands Business Park, East Kilbride and encompasses 16,500 square feet of workshops along with 3,500 square feet of office spaces. The site is expected to house around 80 employees.

The company is also renaming its subsidiary, GDC Design, as Principal Building Ltd.

Calum Melville, chief executive Edison Group, said: “The investment from Edison Capital into new facilities, eleven machines and a spray booth as well as the appointment of a top, four-strong senior management team with over one hundred 100 years of experience, uniquely positions Principal Building as a main contractor offering new build, major refits, shopfitting, minor works, interior fit out and manufactured joinery using state-of the-art Felder machinery."

Aside from Principal Building, other ventures such as Eden Homes (Scotland) Ltd, Crown Architectural Ltd and TedCo Contracts Ltd will also be based at the East Kilbride facility.

"Edison Group continues to be a focus for our time, effort and capital investment as we continue to develop our construction business in the UK."
