Innovate, produce, inspire and succeed at ESAM, the Enterprise Space for Advanced Manufacturing.
Helping you bring your concepts to life...

The Enterprise Space for Advanced Manufacturing (ESAM) is a new workspace dedicated to growing advanced manufacturing, engineering and low carbon environmental goods and services businesses.

Part funded by the European Regional Development Fund, ESAM is the first phase of the new Carluddon Technology Park.
