Posted on 27 Jan 2014 by The Manufacturer

Manufacturing firm WGM Engineering is to create 35 new jobs at its Livingston and Glasgow facilities following a £200,000 investment.

The company was recently awarded £200,000 in Regional Selective Assistance from Scottish Enterprise, taking job numbers at both sites to 168.

Youth Employment Minister Angela Constance made the job announcement about the firm which works with companies across the water, waste, petrochemical and power generation sectors.

“WGM has committed to creating a further 35 jobs, which will support their future expansion and as a result will bring a substantial boost to the local economy,” she said.

“This company has a long history of working in Scotland and developing their business model to adapt to customer wants and demands.”

WGM managing director Ian Mathieson added: “We are investing heavily in our facilities and our workforce because we recognise that our primary market in the oil and gas sector is forecast to grow strongly over the next few years, both in the UK and overseas.

“This new investment and expansion will help ensure WGM Engineering has the capacity to capture a share of that growth.”
