Acer's fast-track

CONTRACTORS interested in constructing a £25 million computer factory in Cardiff for Taiwan firm Acer will find themselves on a fast-track project, with the plant expected to be operational by August next year.

The decision to build on the 20 ha site follows a fierce contest for the location between Wales and north-east England, with Wales clinching the deal because it is nearer to Acer's suppliers. The firm plans to build further manufacturing plants in the UK.
