Old Compaq advert. Makes me wonder where that factory is or was exactly, and is it still open?

Compaq were based in Erskine, just next to the Erskine Bridge. The factory is still there, but now belongs to HP (they bought Compaq).

Also.. some good wee back roads round about that area!

Its the big complex of buildings just to the left of Erskine Hospital in the link above.
