Dundee’s Lord Provost visits Michelin plant
Dundee’s ‘first citizen’, the city’s Lord Provost Bob Duncan, has toured Michelin’s Baldovie Road plant as part of a series of fact-finding company visits planned for the coming weeks. The visit was hosted by plant manager John Reid.
“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,” commented Duncan. “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,” added the Lord Provost.
