Oban-based Fusion Marine becomes Gael Force Fusion and Corpach Boatbuilding Company is renamed to Gael Force Boatbuilding, positioning both businesses under the Gael Force brand.
Trusted supplier of aquaculture equipment, technology and services Gael Force Group has announced, in a recent press release, new company names, logos and jobs for its fish farm pen and boatbuilding businesses.
The name changes represent the ongoing seamless integration of both Fusion and Corpach into the Gael Force Group and highlights the Group’s aim to demonstrate its ability to provide end-to-end product and service supply to the aquaculture sector. They will also adopt new Gael Force style logos demonstrating the integral part both business units form within the Group.
The businesses were acquired in 2018 by Gael Force Group and have since been working together within a larger group, accelerating the development of new innovative projects and conducting R&D in order to deliver better value for its customer base.
The company has started the year by undertaking its largest ever recruitment drive with up to 40 new positions being required over a range of job roles.
The advertised jobs are spread across a number of locations which include Oban and Corpach, as well as Inverness and Forres, where various roles and a range of skillsets are currently being sought. The primary driver for increasing its workforce is greater customer demand for its range of aquaculture equipment, including offshore pens, concrete and steel feed barges, and marine technology systems.
Commenting on the name changes, Group Marketing Manager Marc Wilson commented: “Both companies have been an excellent fit within the Group, sharing in the common values we believe to be vital in achieving our vision and mission, and ultimately enabling us to provide our customers with a first class competitive product offering. Both workforces have been utterly commendable in their motivation and willingness to integrate as part of a bigger team – a huge credit goes to those colleagues. We are all very much united in our approach and therefore the changing of names and adoption of new logos is the natural next step to take.”
