    Gates Power Transmission Ltd Dumfries is a wholly owned subsidiary of The Gates Corporation, whose headquarters are in Denver, USA. The Gates Corporation is one of the market leaders in the production of hi-tech rubber belts and hoses for industrial, hydraulic, agricultural and automotive applications. Currently the old section of the factory is being demolished and thought I would take a wee sneaky peak before its all gone.

    Had a few quick looks at this late nights 2005/2010,gave up waiting for it to close, but quite nice. The offices were very dated and still in use at the time, behind an occasional door it would go from in use to properly rotten.
