Expansion strategy relies on personnel commitment

Member News

Balmoral Tanks, the Thurnscoe-based tank design and manufacturing company, is doubling the size of its manufacturing facility with a new production line going live later in 2019.

The new product line will further extend the company’s portfolio which is targeted worldwide, from Argentina to Australia, Scandinavia to South Africa as well as the home UK market.

With such expansion comes a requirement for high quality and committed employees across many disciplines, from accountancy to HR, sales and engineering to production and logistics. Balmoral is seen is one of the key employers in South Yorkshire and its recruitment policy is one of rigour making it one of the most sought-after places of employment in the region.

Allan Joyce, the company’s managing director, says: “The positive impact of any business strategy is witnessed at the level of ‘execution’. Compiling a strategy is one thing, executing it is somewhat more of a challenge.

“At Balmoral, execution is all about communication with our people, the capabilities of our people and the engagement of our people. In summary, personnel are at the heart of every successful company, and our business strategies are built around the capabilities of our staff and our belief that they provide a real and sustainable competitive advantage.

“We have invested in an in-house leadership academy, attained Investors in People accreditation and are developing a long-term plan which will clearly lay out the necessary competencies required in our business by individual job roles and how that can lead to all employees building successful career paths in Balmoral.

“We are committed to continual investment in our staff and firmly believe strong leadership and management of a business is probably the most single important factor to its success. We are on the right track with our feet firmly on the ground. We have the desire, capability and resilience to continue our success and be a company that is truly the best in the world at what it does.”

Balmoral Tanks currently employs around 250 people and expects this to increase by 10% when the new production line becomes operational. Interested candidates should monitor the company’s Careerzone for future opportunities which can be found at www.balmoraltanks.com.
