Local MSP Finlay Carson recently met with renewables energy firm Kite Power Systems.


The Essex based firm, which is expanding its business in Stranraer, held an open day at Dumfries & Galloway College Stranraer campus. The open day was an opportunity for anybody interested in the firm to learn more about its work and the upcoming job opportunities.

During the open day Carson met with employees and some of the local people who attended the open day. He also met with the local management team to discuss opportunities for KPS to further invest in the area.

Galloway and West Dumfries MSP Finlay Carson said:

“It was great to have the opportunity to attend Kite Power Systems’ open day last weekend.

“I am delighted that they are looking to recruit locally, bringing jobs and investment to Stranraer.

“It was also great to hear that, where possible, they are sourcing from local companies such as Natural Power and Kellwoods in Dumfries, supporting the local economy.”
