A fast-growing company making safety barriers expects to create 25 jobs this year in response to rising demand.
Elland-based A-SAFE is expanding its 50-strong workforce by recruiting for roles in its warehousing and production departments.
The move will enable the firm to introduce a continental shift system allowing it to operate round the clock – and meet rising demand for its products.
A-SAFE is the inventor and manufacturer of the world’s first fixed, polymer safety barrier system, used in warehouses, car parks, factories, airports and other workplaces across the world. Part of the increase in demand is coming from firms wanting to replace old metal barriers with A-SAFE products.
The company, which has offices in seven countries and re-sellers around the world, won the Queen’s Award for International Trade in 2014 and an innovation award this year for its new iFlex range.
A-SAFE will hold an open day for potential employees on Wednesday, June 10, at its Elland headquarters. The firm is looking immediately for a production supervisor, production technician and production team member – with other roles to be created in the coming months.
Nikki Speak, A-SAFE operations manager, said: “We’re an innovative company expanding at a fast rate and we are trying to be innovative with our employment processes.
“We believe the open day will be a great way for potential employees to find out more about A-SAFE and discover if they are suited to the job roles and to working in a challenging, fast-paced but rewarding environment.”
A-SAFE plans two sessions on the day – with the morning session running from 9am to noon and the afternoon session running from 1pm to 4pm. Those looking to attend should email confirmation of their interest in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org and specify a preference for the morning or afternoon session.
