Queen and Prince Philip visit Michelin plant
The Michelin tyre factory in Dundee is the city’s largest employer, and last year the tyre maker committed to a plant modernisation investment totalling more than £52 million. The funds cover the installation of new tyre building machinery that will boost production capacity by 30 per cent, electric curing presses and the erection of a new 20,000 square metre warehouse.
Yesterday the during a visit to the Baldovie Road site, the Queen officially opened the warehouse and, together with the Duke of Edinburgh, toured the plant and the new BNS Auto Technology Centre. Michelin UK has described the visit as “an absolute honour.”
