Recruitment drive follows £ 26m contract wins for energy-focused engineering specialist

An internationally-operating energy-focused Grimsby engineering firm is gearing up to build on significant recent growth.

Technica has revealed it has secured £ 26 million of new projects within the past 12 months, with invoicing up a staggering 172 per cent from £ 5.4 million to £ 14.7 million in the same period.

It is now looking to bolster numbers by up to 30 per cent, as it seeks to recruit skilled engineering professionals to deliver a range of large-scale multi-disciplined projects for the likes of National Grid, WSP, Centrica, SGN, J Murphy and Sons, Gassco and Northern Gas Networks.

Between 10 and 15 new roles are being eyed, to work alongside the existing 50-strong team, itself frequently supplemented by contractors, occasionally doubling the headcount.

Managing director Richard Law said: “We’re going places and we need even more outstanding people to add to our existing team to help us get there.

The Cherry Tree Business Park firm, which also has a satellite office at Congleton in Cheshire, specializes in fiscal and non-fiscal metering, remote telemetry units, fire and gas, supervisory control and data acquisition, industrial automation and control, local gas treatment and the provision of site installation and maintenance.

Mr Law, appointed almost a year ago as owner John Davison became chair, said: “We excel at providing engineering solutions that exceed expectations and we do that thanks to the expertise, knowledge and determination of some of the most exceptional people in our industry who already work with us.

“Like anything, this is all linked to the workload we can see – we may need to add more to tackle strategically important projects or if we need a particular specialist level of expertise as we look for opportunities in the renewable energy sector.”
