Greenfold Systems Ltd. is expanding having recently opened two new facilities in England. Its premises in Scarborough opened last year and employs 53 people, which along with its new assembly unit just opened in Kent, adds to the 85-strong workforce, which Greenfold employs in Dunfermline.
Turnover is up to around £5 million this financial year for the contract manufacturer.
A direct contract with ScotRail is opening the door to lots of new opportunities for Greenfold as it showcases its unique skills set. This, combined with its ambition to acquire like-minded businesses, will bring about the need to recruit more staff – there’s a hope to further increase the workforce this year. Bob Waterson, Director of Greenfold Systems Ltd., said: “Being able to showcase our unique capabilities to our clients directly, has been particularly beneficial to growing and developing the business. Our bespoke skills-set and open minded approach to doing things others 'Don't, Won't or Can't do', enables us to offer and deliver an extensive range of services, which sets us apart from competitors.
“We’ve a good solid base for the future, which we look to expand on through business development as well as pursuing acquisitions.” Greenfold currently employs six apprentices and is committed to developing the region’s young people. It also seeks business advice and guidance from Scottish Enterprise, Fife Council Economic Development and Business Gateway Fife.
