That this House gives thanks to Ardmel Group and Ilasco/Keela Outdoors, based in Glenrothes, for their efforts over the last year in supporting Scotland’s NHS in the fight against covid-19 by producing PPE gowns for use by the NHS; highlights that in doing so they created around 50 jobs for local folk whose employment was impacted by the pandemic; thanks the staff for producing 15,000 gowns per week and setting up their manufacturing for this within an extremely short three week timeframe; notes the company’s innovative way of working and their manufacturing machines that have made Ilasco/Keela a world leader in design engineering and manufacture of specialist machinery for the clothing, electronics and motorcar industries; recognises the hard work of the staff during this particularly difficult time; further highlights the efforts of the company in ensuring manufacturing continues to play a huge part in present day Glenrothes; and wishes them all the best for the continued future success of the business.
