Tulway has increased its headcount by 20 percent across the Liverpool City Region and the North East.

The firm said it is still “actively looking” to recruit further as it enters the fourth quarter of 2021.

Having recently announced the acquisition of a prominent 30,000 sq ft fabrication workshop in Middlesbrough and the TUPE transfer of 23 new staff members, Tulway has also welcomed seven new recruits in the North East.

Notable recruits include welder Thomas Power, technical clerk Mitchell Helm and apprentices James Woods (apprentice pipe welder) and James Shepherd (apprentice pipefitter).

Also employing Lucy Ackroyd, who has recently been promoted from North East administrator to North East office manager, Tulway has taken on senior North East contracts manager Stephen Simpson, with Simpson working in the region for the past two decades.

With Tulway’s Knowsley HQ also expanding significantly during the last year, Carl Harrison, who has been at the company since 2007 has been promoted to North West contracts manager.

Gareth Ellis has also been appointed as the new accounts manager at the company.

Kevin Tully, managing director of Tulway Engineering, said: “We have invested greatly into both our sites and I am pleased that this investment has led to job creation, both at senior and apprenticeship level”.

On the brink of opening a new structural steel workshop in Middlesbrough, Tulway is expecting to take on at least seven new members of staff before the end of the year.
