Scottish PPE manufacturer confirms plans for new North East base

A Scottish PPE manufacturer has announced that it is opening up a new base in the North East.

Gibb Group, headquartered in Aberdeen, said that the new base comes as part of its “ambitious” expansion plans, and will provide it with access to the offshore wind industry.

The company has not confirmed where in the North East the new base will be, but said that it will open two further bases on the east coast before the end of 2022.

It recently opened a £2m distribution and service hub in Great Yarmouth, and has recruited 14 new members of staff to support its growth.

Terry Simmons, director, commented: “Since rolling out our ambitious expansion plans, we have experienced growth far beyond what we originally predicted.

“The North East has always been an area of interest as a strategic location for the business.

“The area has some of the very best talent in the offshore wind industry and with the region fast emerging as a centre of excellence for renewable energy, it made absolute sense to consolidate our plans to open a base there.

“We have exciting plans for 2021 and 2022 and very much look forward to continuing to build on our success as we open our new branches in strategic energy hubs both in the North East and elsewhere across the UK, with two more bases to be opened on the East Coast during 2021 – 2022.”
