A top Brechin business has recently secured business deals worth £1.8 million that has resulted in the creation of seven new jobs.

Hydrus, which has a 35,000 square foot base in the town, secured the deals in the last three months.

The company has secured the work primarily in the subsea engineering sector where it will support subsea construction activities for clients in the North Sea, west of Shetland and Trinidad and Tobago.

The news comes several weeks after the company announced that apprenticeships would be used alongside a recruitment drive to help tackle an increase in demand.

The company had originally stated that it would be adding a further 10 members of staff over the year, but the new contracts have seen them step up the pace of recruitment.

Hydrus offers an extensive range of expert manufacturing services and engineering solutions to the energy industries.

The company works with operators, tier one service companies, subsea original equipment manufacturers and increasingly in the renewables market.

Commenting on the contract wins, Hydrus managing director Martin F. Anderson said: “We originally planned to take on 10 new people this year and we are pleased that the recent upturn in our business has accelerated those plans.

“Once again we find ourselves perfectly positioned to capitalise on the excellent infrastructure our location affords us because we are able to transport equipment quickly and efficiently to quaysides in both Aberdeen and Montrose where we have recently completed a second project.

“Equipment was again manufactured in Brechin then assembled, tested and commissioned at Montrose prior to being sea fastened to the vessel for its final journey offshore.”
