Headcount at a new company created to provide critical medical gas services to hospitals and laboratories has grown sevenfold in its first six months.
Boldon-based Opus Medigas has welcomed its latest two recruits, bringing the total headcount to eight.
Managing Director Bryan Wood-Laine said: “From a standing start and just one employee in January our rapid growth is well ahead of our expectations for the first year.
“Our success so far can be attributed to our reputation and contacts within the industry, coupled with the Opus brand.
“A large part of our recruitment is down to the volume of work we have already won, but we are also looking to recruit infrastructure staff in the near future.”
