Dundee-based specialist engineering solutions company Galloway Group has reported a sharp increase in new jobs, with 37 new employees taken on across its business in recent months. Of the 37 jobs created, 33 are in the manufacturing plant at Wester Gourdie.

This comes on the back of an improving order book.  Since December 2014, the company has achieved £11.5m worth of sales, despite the very tough trading conditions in the manufacturing and, particularly, oil & gas sectors.

Galloway’s Managing Director, Jim Mathieson, commented “The fact that we’ve been hiring on this scale underlines our continuing business growth and ambitious plans for the future.  Between our Dundee and Dewsbury facilities, we’re proud to employ over 280 people and to give them skilled, well-paid jobs, which benefit both our customers’ businesses and the local economy.”

He added “We’re really just getting started. The Galloway family will continue to grow. In the short term, this will be in two areas. Firstly, we are in the final stages of taking on new graduates to help continue to grow the business through our new two-year Graduate Development Programme. Secondly, we are keen to expand our skilled fabrication team even further. So if you have fabrication expertise and are looking for a new opportunity, then we want to talk to you about your future.”
