Midlothian firms show ambition

A Midlothian science park is proving to be a magnet for high-growth companies, according to a new survey.

Sixty-seven per cent of tenant companies at Edinburgh Technopole are planning to grow by more than 15 per cent in the next five years.

They gave a positive outlook for the future in response to a recent online survey.

Half of the respondents believe they will employ more than 10 people five years from now.
