Exploring IBM factory in Greenock

Published: 17 Sep 2017

The Spango Valley IBM factory was opened in Greenock in the 1950's

During IBM's time in Greenock, the site was used for the production of office equipment such as typewriters and photocopiers. It was during the 90's when the Greenock IBM plant was in full swing building thousands of PC's every day. At one point the Greenock IBM facility employed up to 5000 people. IBM also outsourced to other factories in the locality. Mimtec (Lateraly Fullerton computer industries) where a large scale non-IBM assembler of IBM pc's. Since IBM stopped their PC activity this site has been taken over by Amazon and is one of their UK fulfilment centers.

The IBM facility in this video is currently being demolished to make way for future development.
