New staff sought as ISD Solutions predicts major growth in 2022
Published on 24th Nov, 2021
Coldstore and composite panel specialists ISD Solutions are continuing a recruitment drive, started in 2020, in anticipation of major growth over the coming 18 months.
The Gloucester-based business, a division of The P&M Group, saw turnover steadily rise from under £34m in 2018 to £46m for the current financial year, which closes at the end of January.
The company is forecasting more growth in 2022 and beyond, with booked orders and pipeline sales surpassing any previous annual performance.
As a result, the group will see its current workforce grow to over 220 from its current numbers of 180, with vacancies primarily for site installers, project and site managers.
Many of the site staff will be supplied by coldstore installation specialists Tysoe Holdings, recently acquired by The P&M Group. The Company’s growth is also expected to result in additional opportunities for its many subcontractor staff.
High demand from the food sector during the pandemic has seen ISD securing and completing – and maintaining, in future – several large construction contracts for distribution centres following the nationwide rise in online shopping.
As the company has grown, a painstaking selection of candidates sharing company values and culture has seen staff added – 25 in the past 12 months – throughout the engineering, management, projects, design and health and safety departments of the business.
Andy Moon, Chairman of The P&M Group Ltd, of which ISD Solutions is the major trading division, said that the next phase of company growth needed careful management. “We are working with recruitment and HR support to ensure that we maintain the quality of our specialist services, as well as maximising retention and staff motivation,” he said.
