The new owner of McGill has started recruiting staff on the back of positive meetings with the firm’s former customers.
Catalus Energy Investments Limited bought McGill from administration earlier this month following the Dundee construction firm going under, with the loss of 374 jobs, at the start of February.
Chief executive Graeme Carling said he had been “overwhelmed” by the response of the firm’s former clients and has started recruiting tradespeople, including some former members of staff.
“We have a number of positions up just now and have already welcomed a few ex-employees back to support the company move forward,” he said.
“We have about 10 positions available just now but have been overwhelmed by the response from customers and suppliers when meeting with them.
“The response has been everything he had hoped for and shows the strength of the McGill brand/ name around the country.”
Roles advertised, with an immediate start, include plumbers, joiners, electricians and a security system engineer.
Mr Carling said he was reviewing the sectors in which McGill previously operated and also said he was keen to pursue any acquisition opportunities.
“We have also made the decision that our growth strategy for McGill will be via acquisition and are encouraging facilities management companies to get in touch if they want to sell their business to McGill,” he added.
“As we are focussed on driving the business back to where it was, we are also reviewing the sectors that the company was operational in and also new sectors where we see a strategic benefit.”
Mr Carling announced the new members of McGill’s board last week.
He said he would assume the role of chief executive on a temporary basis while looking for someone to lead the firm permanently.
