Turbo Guy wins cash backing
Two Glasgow remanufacturing specialists are among nine companies to have won a share of nearly £250,000 funding from the Scottish Institute for Remanufacture (SIR) to develop their businesses. The Turbo Guy specialises in the remanufacturing of turbochargers and diesel particulate filters, has 14 staff and already works with Heriot Watt University on applying circular economy strategies to its operation. Meanwhile, Mackie Transmission Systems was set up in 1977 and remanufactures automotive, industrial and marine transmissions. It employs 35 staff and works with the reman group at the University of Strathclyde (where SIR is based) to improve its processes. Since it was set up in 2015, SIR has awarded over £700,000 to 32 projects.
