New jobs at Mammoet UK
By Euan Youdale19 January 2009
Mammoet UK has created 55 jobs at its Teesside facility in the run up to the 2012 London Olympic Games, bringing the workforce up to 154.
The investment included 16 new cranes in its 63-strong fleet.
The company is set to increase its involvement in the 2012 Olympic Games after helping to complete the Docklands Light Railway, which will transport thousands of people to and from competition venues, including the Olympic Park in London.
The company, a subsidiary of Netherlands-based giant Mammoet B.V, believes it has the potential to grow further this year and hopes to create some 50 extra jobs.
"We have managed to remain unharmed from the economic downturn as we are involved with a range of strong sectors, as opposed to others that are mainly reliant on construction," said Brian Alderson Mammoet UK marketing manager. "Our increased capacity will allow us to become even more attractive to developers when it comes to deciding who gets the biggest contracts."
