News : IBM Pulling Out of Spango Valley
Spango Valley, Greenock, UK, Oct 23, 2015 -- The last IBM workers will leave Spango Valley, Greenock next year, ending more than 60 years of the company's presence at the site.
Several hundred staff based in the so-called 'blue building' contact centre will move to Riverside Business Park, Pottery Street, Greenock. Those premises are being vacated by Lenovo who are moving their workers to Glasgow.
The electronics provider had around 5,500 workers at Spango Valley by 1999. A spokesman for IBM said: "IBM continually evaluates its real estate requirements to match client needs and will continue to retain a presence in the Greenock area."
One long-standing Spango Valley worker told Inverclyde Now: "April is when the Riverside building will be received and full re-location of employees will be in the third quarter of 2016. We were told there are no job losses regarding this move.
