GAEL Force Group has announced the signing of a contract with the Scottish Salmon Company as the preferred supplier of consumables to both farms and processing sites.
Inverness based Gael Force already services a number of fish farm sites across Scotland with consumables.The firm will create further jobs to meet the needs of the south west farm sites, enhancing its existing supply chain team of nine full-time staff.
Gael Force has also increased the workforce in its Glasgow premises with additional staff and a new delivery route to cover the southern area sites.
Increasing its consumable supply chain service strengthens Gael Force’s commitment to the aquaculture market and is part of the Highland based firm’s strategy for growth, said Stewart Graham, managing director.
‘The added consumables contract fits well with our current development plan within the group’s focus on the aquaculture business.
‘It’s another step forward for Gael Force becoming an end to end supplier of equipment and technology to the Scottish aquaculture markets.’
The Scottish Salmon Company has 60 sites on the west coast of Scotland and in the Hebrides.
Craig Anderson, managing director, said: ‘We are committed to using local suppliers wherever possible – it is a core part of our strategy for long-term sustainable growth.
‘Our new arrangement with Gael Force demonstrates this and will assist in driving efficiencies throughout the business.’
