At the MACC Business Park we realise the vast potential that lies in our site, it provides a great opportunity for socio-economic growth in Kintyre and a sustainable future for the next generation.

Last week we hosted the local MAK STEM (science, technology, engineering, maths) festival which welcomed S2 pupils from Campbeltown, Tarbert and Lochgilphead to the business park, to showcase future STEM careers opportunities. The local community was also welcomed to see what a career in STEM could offer.

Companies who attended included Scottish Power Renewables, Forestry and Land Scotland, Discover Space UK, Scottish Association for Marine Science, Marine Environmental Research Lab, Stirling University, Tilhil Forestry, Royal Navy Airforce, MOWI, Fire Scotland and Renewable Parts.

The University of the Highlands and Islands, tenants of MACC Business Park, also attended to showcase what a STEM career can offer.

The event was run by ALI Energy’s Education and Skills Development Programme which is funded by ScottishPower Renewables, with help from DYW Argyll and Bute, and Argyll and Bute Council.
