Gael Force Group starts recruitment drive
Gael Force Group’s Fusion Marine aims to expand its workforce with the recruitment of up to 12 positions, with at least six of these jobs newly created as the Scotland-based company prepares for growth.
The jobs span across a range of highly skilled roles including technical sales, fabrication, product development and administration. The roles are spread across Fusion’s two locations which include a production facility at Barcaldine near Oban, and an administration centre at Malin House, European Business Park in Dunbeg.
Stewart Graham, managing director of fish farm equipment supplier Gael Force Group, said, “Adding additional highly skilled people to our already exceptional Fusion Marine team in Oban will enable us to successfully engage in the large programme of planned work we have lined up, this including the production of our newest, largest and most innovative fish farm pen design to date.”
The investment represents Fusion Marine’s largest recruitment drive to date and the first major move towards expansion since the acquisition of a majority share in the business by Inverness-based Gael Force Group four months ago. This latest initiative follows a record year for recruitment in 2017 at Gael Force Group where more than 50 new jobs were created across the Group.
The acquisition of Fusion by Gael Force in April of this year was recognised by many in the industry as a sign of the strengthening of the Scottish equipment supply sector.
