We were pleased to welcome Chris Law MP for a visit to our Dundee manufacturing plant last week.

Mr Law was keen to learn more about our range of manufactured products, services, design and engineering capabilities.  During a tour of the manufacturing plant, he was also able to meet many of our highly-skilled, long-serving local employees.

And against the backdrop of other recent local company closures, Mr Law was interested to see for himself how Galloway has remained resilient by continuing to adapt to changing markets, as well as business and customer needs.

Galloway’s Production Director, Chris Burgoyne, said “We were delighted to welcome Chris Law MP to our Dundee headquarters, so he could see for himself the scale of our operations, the markets we work in and local employment opportunities we continue to deliver.

He added “We look forward to continuing support from our local MP as we embark on the next stage of our ambitious plans for future growth.”

Chris Law MP commented “It has been incredible to learn how diverse Galloway Group is in serving a range of sectors from marine, oil and gas to construction and pharmaceutical.  I was also fascinated to learn that the company has been established in Dundee since before the production of the first ‘real’ motorcar over 150 years ago.

Its ability to adapt and meet the needs of an ever changing market is a true reflection of the skills and vision of all its dedicated and long serving staff and I wish Galloway Group the very best for its future here in Dundee.”

Members of the Galloway team were invited to speak at a series of business seminars across the Middle East last month.

In partnership with local expert, Leminar Air Conditioning Industries LLC and key UK partner Fenland Fire Contracts, Galloway participated in technical seminar events in Dubai, Oman and Qatar for key customers and partners, where they explained the benefits of Galloway Acoustics and Fireduct solutions for the booming construction industry in the region. With the increasing need for fire safety and industrial noise control systems, construction firms in the Middle East are keen to hear about the options available from market-leading UK companies such as Galloway.

Galloway’s Acoustic Technical Engineer, Courtney Jessop (pictured), and Head of Sales & Marketing, Richard Brough, delivered presentations to over 500 people during three days of technical sessions.  They were supported by Kevin Gibson, Director at Fenland Fire Contracts, throughout all three days.

Richard Brough commented “We were delighted to work with Leminar, a key partner in the region, and Fenland Fire Contracts, to explain the benefits of our Acoustics and Fireduct solutions to delegates from the construction industry.  We’re confident these events will help cement our growth plans for the Middle East region, where the construction industry is forecast to grow by 11% to US$126bn in 2016.”

Dundee-based Galloway Group is throwing a potential lifeline to recently redundant offshore workers.

Due to expansion of the company’s electrical installations division, there’s a real need for experienced electrical installers to work on contracts across the Central Belt and North East.  And with the attraction of more regular hours and being able to stay at home, growing numbers of former offshore workers are considering the switch to working onshore.

Just last week, industry body Oil & Gas UK’s Economics Director, Mike Tholen, told MSPs that “inevitably there will be further job losses [offshore], not least because the outlook remains much lower than anticipated even in the spring of this year.”

So with typical annual pay for a skilled electrical installer ranging from £33,000 – 50,000+, a switch to working onshore offers a great alternative to the potential uncertainty of a career offshore.

Galloway Managing Director, Jim Mathieson, commented “It’s a real win-win situation for everyone, as electricians working with us have great earning potential, regular hours and can go home to their families every night.  And both we and our customers can benefit from the electricians’ experience gained both on- and offshore.”

For more details on electrical and other opportunities at Galloway, please visit www.gallowaygroup.co.uk or call 01382 611444.
