Scotshield, in Newcastle, wants to build on Rolls-Royce contract
A FIRE safety and security system firm says it wants to create more North-East jobs after securing work worth £2m to carry out contracts for a renowned engineering firm and new hospital.
Scotshield has won a contract with Rolls Royce to fit fire alarm systems at its Newcastle-based engineering apprentice training centre, and will supply fire alarms and CCTV to the £70m Northumbria Specialist Emergency Care Hospital, in Cramlington, Northumberland.
The company has created ten North-East posts at its Newcastle office, and last year appointed security expert Keith Gascoigne as head of business development to maintain its growth.
Michael MacBean, Scotshield business development director, said: “We have been thrilled with the success of the business in the North-East since we appointed Keith, and have made a further commitment to the region by opening our new office.
“These significant contracts demonstrate our growing reputation and it is pleasing to be making a contribution to the region's economy and creating new jobs.
“Our first six months in the North-East have given us a perfect platform and the confidence to grow the business further and create more jobs.”
The company, based in Glasgow, employs more than 250 people across the UK, with offices in London, Birmingham and Edinburgh.
