PSS Plans to Recruit 40 Staff in NE Scotland

Aberdeen-based Process Safety Solutions plans to increase its staff by up to 40 people within two years at its new facility in Wick, northeast Scotland, which was opened Tuesday.

PSS supports of the oil and gas sector in the UK and overseas, providing systems life-cycle management solutions. Its new base currently employs five staff but the firm is looking to boost its business by diversifying into the renewables market for wave, tidal and wind energy.

PSS founder David Green commented in a company statement:

"We have had great support and have worked closely with the team from Highlands and Islands Enterprise as we saw great potential in utilizing the wide skills base in the area. More and more companies in Aberdeen are outsourcing engineering work, until now this has been largely to India and England.

"We would like to reverse this trend and fully realize the potential within Scotland's engineering community. Access to the local skill base developed over the last 50 years at Dounreay was one of the main drivers to the new office location. When you couple that with the fact that I am originally from Wick so know the area and people very well, the reasons are quite compelling."
