Water firm to create 60 jobs
A PERTHSHIRE-BASED independent water retailer has announced plans to create up to 60 jobs in Blairgowrie.
Castle Water is investing half a million pounds into a new service centre.
The company, established in 2014, supplies businesses, charities and public bodies in Scotland and England. As well as its headquarters in Blairgowrie, the fastgrowing firm has offices in Glasgow, Ayr, Leeds, Portsmouth and London.
The firm’s most recently filed accounts, to March 31 last year, show the business generated revenues of £17.9 million, a significant rise from the £2.9m turnover reported in 2016.
Much of that was due to an aggressive growth strategy that saw the firm acquire the business customers of Portsmouth and Thames Water in 2016.
Castle Water chief executive John Reynolds said the firm was planning a major recruitment drive.
He said: “Our new service centre will support future growth with up to 60 new jobs while confirming our strong commitment to our growing customer base across the UK.”
TO say I was sceptical when I was asked to head along to see a hypnotherapist to help me stop smoking would be an understatement.
