Scottish Enterprise Technology Park

Located a half-mile (0.8 km) southeast of the centre of East Kilbride in South Lanarkshire, the Scottish Enterprise Technology Park began as the site of the National Engineering Laboratory in 1948. This laboratory was privatised in the late 1980s, and significantly downsized. Becoming part of the German-owned TÜV SÜD group in 1995, NEL is the custodian of the national standards for flow measurement, and now provides consultancy, measurement, testing and calibration, research and development and training services to the global oil & gas sector. The Scottish Universities Research and Reactor Centre was established on the site in 1963, later renamed the Scottish Universities Environmental Research Centre.

In 1994, the 34-ha (84-acre) facility was acquired by the Scottish Enterprise Network who were given responsibility for its reinvigoration. The park has grown markedly and is now home to around 100 technology companies in a range of multi-occupancy and stand-alone buildings, employing more than 1200 highly skilled staff.
