AN engineering company is planning to create up to 25 jobs after moving into a business park.
Nortech Solutions has set up home at Wynyard with ambitious plans to generate jobs and bring prestige projects to the area.
Company founder Bryan Bunn, an engineer with extensive international experience, said Nortech would be supplying firms with technical services from start to finish on their chosen projects.
He added: “There are considerable opportunities to be seized upon in the engineering design and project management arenas.
“Nortech Solutions has the necessary level of expertise to secure contracts within the energy, oil and gas, and iron and steel sectors.
“It is also well-placed to compete on a global scale.”
He said the North-East was chosen for a head office because the energy, steel and process industries form “the region’s industrial backbone”.
He said there was also an available market of highly skilled and experienced engineers in the area.
He revealed plans to recruit up to 25 people within the next 12 months and has already picked a skilled management team, including project manager, Richard Wheeler, senior electrical instrumentation control engineer, Rob Dickens, senior administrator, Gill Johnson and project assistant, Claire Bishop.
Nortech Solutions has already secured an early success and has been appointed as the authorised UK agent for Paul Wurth, a world-leader in design and supply for the iron and steel, non-ferrous and ferrous alloy industries.
