Soaring demand creates new job opportunities - Macphie

We are on the hunt for new staff to join us at our newly-refurbished factory following soaring demand for our products.

We recommenced full-scale production at our Tannochside factory last year after a £4m refit and layout change, initially creating more than 40 new job roles in the area and now, we’re delighted to be looking for a further 20 staff members to join our production team.

As well as providing a timely boost to the local job market, the increase in numbers at our 25,000 sq ft North Lanarkshire site follows rising demand for our ice cream inclusions.

Our chief executive Andy Stapley said: “The improved capacity at Tannochside has allowed us to secure major new listings with current customers, as well as brand new ones.

“That increase in demand has led to a fantastic opportunity for us, which is to expand our workforce and continue to thrive in this excelling industry.

“These appointments will arrive at a crucial point in our evolution at Tannochside and we’re delighted to welcome new faces to the Macphie family as we continue to increase our client base and add to our ever-growing product portfolio.”

The refurbishment of Tannochside marks our biggest ever investment programme since we first acquired the site in 2000.

Andy adds: “The investment into Tannochside has already enabled us to create and fill 40 job roles in a part of the country that has experienced a number of permanent factory closures.

“The 20 additional roles that we have now been able to create highlights the success we have been experiencing – and this is only just the start.

“Our rapidly climbing rates of production after upping our capacity at the factory indicate that we will continue to grow over the next year and that will hopefully allow us to create new jobs in a broad range of positions.”
