CLYDEUNION Pumps growing business

The Herald reports Clyde Union’s historic former Weir Pumps business, which was rescued by Scottish engineering entrepreneur Jim McColl, will this year raise its headcount to more than 1000 – almost double the number employed at the site when Weir sold the operation.

CLYDEUNION Pumps is one of the world’s leading pump companies – a centre of excellence in Pump Technology, Hydraulic Design and Engineering.

In 2009, CLYDEUNION Pumps launched the CLYDEUNION Academy, an educational, learning and training centre to support the company’s extensive growth plans and offer employees fully accredited qualifications in-house at the Cathcart site, in partnership with Glasgow Caledonian University.

Executive Chairman Jim McColl and Professor Pamela Gillies, Principal and Vice Chancellor of Glasgow Caledonian University signed a Memorandum of Understanding for CLYDEUNION Academy to offer a bespoke CLYDEUNION MSc in Leadership and Management. This programme is delivered in-house by University lecturers and associate lecturers who are being developed from within CLYDEUNION Pumps.
