LEADING aquaculture equipment supplier Gael Force has launched its largest ever recruitment drive to staff its ever growing business.
Up to 40 new positions are being advertised in a range of roles so the company can meet increasing demand for aquaculture equipment, including offshore pens, concrete and steel feed barges, and marine technology systems.
Gael Force, which currently has more than 225 employees UK wide, expanded last year to incorporate Oban based pen maker Fusion Marine and the Corpach Boatbuilding Company into its stable.
Now these have both been renamed – Gael Force Fusion and Gael Force Boatbuilding – and will have new logos, as part of a branding exercise, it was announced today.
The new jobs will be spread across a number of locations which include Oban and Corpach, as well as in Gael Force’s headquarters in Inverness and in Forres.
The name changes represent the ongoing seamless integration of both Fusion and Corpach into the Gael Force Group, said the company, and highlight its end-to-end product and service supply to the aquaculture sector.
Since the two firms were acquired by Gael Force, they have been working together, accelerating the development of innovative projects and conducting R&D.
Group marketing manager Marc Wilson said: ‘Both companies have been an excellent fit within the group, sharing in the common values we believe to be vital in achieving our vision and mission, and ultimately enabling us to provide our customers with a first class competitive product offering.
‘Both workforces have been utterly commendable in their motivation and willingness to integrate as part of a bigger team – a huge credit goes to those colleagues.
‘We are all very much united in our approach and therefore the changing of names and adoption of new logos is the natural next step to take.’
