UKSE backs firm
Engineer adds 80 jobs after steel fund support
Celebrating new funding at ID Systems UK
A North Lanarkshire engineering services company will create 80 jobs after receiving a six-figure funding boost from UK Steel Enterprise (UKSE).
ID Systems UK, based in Cumbernauld, will use the funds to invest in staff training, improved business processes such as a new IT software, and enhanced manufacturing capability. The jobs will be created over five years.
This is the second round of funding from UKSE, a Tata Steel subsidiary, after earlier support for the company created 120 jobs.
The firm has a range of clients in the water, industrial and commercial sectors across the UK, with Scottish Water being its main customer.
Iain Doherty, managing director, said: “The markets we currently operate in have a strong pipeline of capital programmes for the next 10 years, and our forecast indicates that we will double in size within the next three years.
“With this rate of growth, UKSE’s commitment is vital to us.”
Scott Webb, regional executive for UKSE said: “This is a really exciting time for ID Systems and we are very much looking forward to watching them develop and grow.
“The team are ambitious and have an excellent track record of delivering a high quality of service to their customers. UKSE are proud to continue to support such a fantastic organisation.”
