WORK has finished on business units in Dalgety Bay created as part of the Fife Industrial Innovation Investment Programme.

The project, funded by the Edinburgh and South East Scotland City Region Deal, has seen eight new industrial premises built at West Way on the Hillend and Donibristle Industrial Estate.

A range of businesses have already moved in and the development's completion marks a significant milestone in Fife Council’s long-term commitment to regenerating the site.

One of the first tenants is AV Department Limited, and their new location is helping them to tap into new technologies, connect better with customers and and expand their business.

Managing director Mark Kisby said: "The move to West Way for AV Department Limited marks an expansion and consolidation of the new services developed during the pandemic.

"Our old office and warehouse will be converted into permanent studio spaces to service our new online clients, providing remote interpretation and a green screen video studio for recording presentations, remote BSL and social media content creation.

"The office and warehouse at West Way will allow us to better serve our returning onsite clients with improved efficiencies in space and costs.

"The expansion offers the company the chance to progress in its zero-carbon goals. The units are built to a very high standard and are very well insulated."

Councillor Altany Craik, Fife Council's cabinet spokesperson for finance, economy and strategic planning, said: "It’s an exciting stage as we are starting to see businesses getting the benefit of these modern units, creating jobs and helping Fife’s economy.

"Our focus in Fife is on fairer economic growth, where everyone benefits from good employment opportunities and regional investments.

"The new units are a huge opportunity for entrepreneurs and are set to help a range of businesses reach their aspirations and vision. They provide a superb base for new and fledgling businesses – as well as for those looking to expand into new premises.”

Cllr David Barratt, Fife Council's South and West Fife area committee convener, added: “Fife Council’s further investment through the Fife Industrial Innovation Investment Programme complements the adjacent terrace of new units that were completed with help from the Longannet Task Force.

"It's a highly-accessible location with a skilled local workforce."
