Finlay Carson, the Scottish Conservative and Unionist candidate for Galloway and West Dumfries, this week met with managers of SIMS, an IT Recycling Solution company based in Dumfries ahead of May’s Scottish Parliamentary election.
Finlay, who set up his own IT company, CMS, with his brother in Twynholm 20 years ago, was interested to learn about the origins of, and the reasons behind the success the SIMS an industry leader in ICT refurbishment specialising in providing secure IT Asset Disposal services across the UK and Ireland, and throughout Europe.
Finlay said, “Employing over 70 people and boasting a portfolio of national and international clients, SIMS is real asset to the people of Dumfries. It is a great example of how an internationally renowned company can benefit from the comparatively lower rental costs and skilled workforce available in our region.”
“Dumfries has the potential for all types of enterprise. Companies such as SIMS need to be championed and infrastructure improvements pursued to support their development, such as road improvements to our major trunk roads, the A75 and A76.”
“Only with leadership and a clear vision for the future of the town will Dumfries reach its full potential.
If elected to Parliament in May, I will use my 27 years of business experience and common sense approach to push for the changes that are needed to attract new companies and support existing businesses, safeguarding jobs and increase employment opportunities not only in Dumfries but across the region.”
