We are extremely pleased that in the past we could contribute to create parts for the stylish SEC Armadillo (Clyde Auditorium) and now see what an important role it plays for Scottish and International events.
The SEC Armadillo is Scotland's largest exhibition centre, located in the Finnieston district on the North Bank of the River Clyde in Glasgow. It is one of the three main locations and the landmark of the Scottish Event Campus.
Since the original buildings opened in 1985, the complex has undergone two major expansions: the SEC Armadillo in 1997 and then SSE Hydro in 2013.
Greg North, Commercial Director at Barnshaws explained “We are always proud of developments like Armadillo. Whenever we see our projects in the news or in the press, we feel that our hard work is contributing to the construction of facilities where historical events take place. That's why we always like to come back to our projects, whether they were built a month ago or 20 years ago, they are timeless for us.”
Barnshaws is regarded as the world’s most capable metal bending company, specialising specifically in precision bending of ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Based in the Midlands, but with operations in the North of England, Scotland and in Europe, the business proudly supports the civil engineering, power generation, offshore, oil and gas, industrial, commercial vehicle and construction sectors since 1969.
