The Arrol-Johnston car factory was converted to the production first of aircraft engines and, later in the war, complete aircraft. Completed aircraft were delivered by rail to the aircraft acceptance park at Renfrew. The nearby landing ground (NX97NE 153) was used for aeroplanes landing to collect spare parts from the factory.
