Micron DRAM sub packs bags in move to Scotland
Celebrates with special offer
A Micron Europe DRAM subsidiary is shutting up shop in Basingstoke and moving to Scotland. Crucial Technology is promoting its emigration with a 7.5 per cent discount customers buying from its web site for the month of July. Crucial styles itself as the "only factory-direct memory supplier" -- which means it's cheap. The wholly-owned Micron sub has taken a 37,000 sq ft space on seven acres in East Kilbride, near Glasgow. Presumably there will be a few redundancies. Few, because DRAM traders don't employ many people; redundancies, because warehouses are easier to move than people. Especially when it is in the direction of Basingstoke to East Kilbride (Even though Glasgow environs wins hands down everytime as a place to live). ®
