New agribulk terminal for Ayr


Associated British Ports (ABP) has announced a £2.2 million investment in a new warehouse at the Port of Ayr. Work on the new 4,000 sqm agribulk terminal began in 2018 to support South West Scotlands agricultural sector. The new facility will be located on the west side of Griffin Dock at the port.


The contract for building the warehouse has been awarded to a Scottish family-owned company, 3b construction, in line with ABP’s “buy local” strategy, which aims to support local businesses.

Stuart Cresswell, ABP’s Port Manager at Ayr and Troon, said: “Following other recent investments in warehousing, cranes and a new pilot boat, the development of another major agribulk terminal in Ayr is a huge vote of confidence in both our Scottish Ports and our local workforce.


“I strongly believe that the facilities we are developing at Ayr and Troon offer a beacon of hope for the many Scottish voices calling for a renaissance of maritime-related industry and shipping on the Clyde.”
