Tayport based technical textiles business Scott & Fyfe Limited celebrated the official opening of its new Innovation Space and Museum.

John Swinney MSP, Cabinet Secretary for Finance, Employment and Sustainable Growth, unveiled a plaque to mark the occasion in a ceremony attended by Scott & Fyfe staff, customers and partners.

The custom-designed innovation space and museum within an industrial space were developed in conjunction with interior design students from The Glasgow School of Art. This exciting move represents one of the biggest developments in the company’s history. All company staff are now based on one site at Tayport Works; as well as all production and administration the site now includes the Innovation Space which houses individual team pods (business units), a conceptual product development tree, product display areas, a cinema/presentation space, flexible meeting areas and the company Museum.
Nick Kuenssberg, chairman said: “The Museum looks back into the company’s 148 year history and provides the heritage on which the company’s ethos of change and customer care is built. The Innovation Space looks forward to a cross-cutting partnership between staff, customers, suppliers and other technology partners and the promotion of the new innovation-led strategy.”
