Spirit Aerosystems (Europe) Ltd, has chosen Morrison Construction to construct their new specialist paint facility at Prestwick, in a contract worth £4.1 million in total. The project involves the construction of a new paint finishing centre which will form an extension to Building 90 and replace two of the existing paint facilities currently operating on the campus.

Across in Kilmarnock, Morrison Construction have been contracted to build a new 15,000ft² retail extension at the existing Queens Drive retail park to house Smyth Toys, for Aegon UK Property, valued at £1.4m. This project started on site on 11 May for 20 weeks.

Eddie Robertson, Regional Director said: "It is an important success for us to win these contracts as they support our business strategy to diversify into new markets, looking to broaden our client base and build new long term relationships.

We are working closely with the teams both at Spirit Aerosystems (Europe) Ltd and Aegon, as well as the Ayrshire community, and I believe our scale and adaptability are contributory factors in our continued success."
