Swan Engineering, which manufactures bespoke equipment for a range of industries, has just completed its biggest contract since its launch in 2010. It manufactured and installed a new potato production line for a global organisation, based in Tayside.
The business has grown organically. Swan Engineering’s first employee joined in July 2014, and since then it has grown to 18 staff and through continual investment, offers subcontract laser cutting, CNC sheet metalwork and expansive CNC machining/ turning capabilities.
Currently, it is working on some sizeable contracts for Scottish customers, and it is also expanding with the creation of a new 4,500 sq. ft. extension, as well as an in-house blasting and power coat/paint area.
To support this development, Swan Engineering received a grant from Scottish Enterprise’s Regional Selective Assistance (RSA) and has committed to employing more staff.
Business Gateway Fife referred Dale Swan, Managing Director of Swan Engineering for RSA funding. He said: “We have had tremendous help and support from Business Gateway Fife over the years. Our business adviser, Lynne Baillie, supported us with the RSA application - her help was invaluable.”
