Arrayjet boosts payroll on overseas growth

Iain McWilliamArrayjet, the Midlothian-based life science business, has increased its staffing levels as it grows its international sales development pipeline.

It comes as many of the world’s university research and biomedical research institutes buy into Arrayjet’s range of instrumentation.

It has begun the process of designing and developing a new product scheduled for launch in 2018 for its next generation of bio-printing technological solutions. 

Seven jobs have been created across Arrayjet’s core science, engineering and commercial units with the new recruits expanding the staff levels to 25. Recently joining are David Crabb as Chief Engineer; Maya Kowalewska, Application Scientist; Catriona Ford, Senior Applications Scientist; Ranald Pringle, Commercial Manager, Europe & Middle East; Gavin Boothroyd, Commercial Manager, North America; Andrew Tomlins, Commercial Manager, Asia Pacific; and Stephanie Kennedy as Administrative Assistant. 

Additionally, existing staff have been given responsibility for new territories.  Saloni Sonawala has split her role as Business Development Executive to assume responsibility of developing new business opportunities across the Indian subcontinent, whilst Russell Brown now has overall responsibility for Arrayjet’s Commercial Operations. There are three additional engineering roles being created later in 2017. 

The company raised £650,000 last September from a range of investors via the Archangel Investment Syndicate.

Iain McWilliam (pictured), chief executive, said: “Arrayjet is on a very sound footing as a profitable, expanding, Scottish-based and international player in the biomedical sector.”

The company expanded into new markets during 2016 and increased its presence in existing key markets. Arrayjet now has a presence in 27 countries.
