First citizen praises wind of change at Michelin's Dundee factory
ERJ staff report (BC)
Dundee, UK – Michelin's facility at Dundee, Scotland has hosted a visit by the city's Lord Provost as part of a fact-finding mission.
Bob Duncan was shown round the Michelin Factory in Baldovie Road as part of a series of company visits.
He said: “Michelin is an example of a company which has been welcomed into Dundee and is now a landmark in its own right – with its wind turbines standing as markers to its location at Baldovie Road.
“The Dundee factory was the first Michelin facility in the world to embrace wind energy, helping to reduce the plant’s environmental impact and energy bills.
“In fact the plant, which opened in 1972, has a long and proud history of innovation and now manufactures over 7,000,000 car tyres each year for export all over the world.”
The visit to the Dundee factory, which employs around 800 people, was hosted by manager John Reid.
