The Lanarkshire Eurocentral Business Centre office is the second to be opened by WEC outside of the North in the past 12 months. Located in the south east of Glasgow in Motherwell, the office is now up and running with a dedicated Business Development Manager, with plans to expand the workforce in the near future.
