Macphie has announced plans to recommence operations at its North Lanarkshire manufacturing site, creating up to 50 new jobs.
After consolidating all its operations to Aberdeenshire in 2020 due to the impact of the pandemic, Macphie has begun a refurbishment programme to refit the 20,000 sq ft space. The programme is set to see the company invest around £4million and employing up to 50 new recruits across operations and quality roles in the first 12 months.
Macphie CEO Andy Stapley says since lockdown ended, the company’s growth has been “strong” and that they are now in a position to recommence operations at the facility located in Tannochside Business Park.
“The pandemic has given us the opportunity to reset and as such we have seen further growth across various sectors of our business,” he said.
“The impact of the pandemic meant it was necessary for us to make difficult decisions, and take action, in order to futureproof our business. We have restructured, rebranded, and are now seeing good growth across core lines.
“We responded quickly to the changing market and are emerging strong from the pandemic. With strong growth in our core business and several new wins, this investment is essential as we gear ourselves up to take advantage of the many other commercial opportunities out there in the marketplace.”
