Gentoo firm jobs

Have your say

A SOLAR panel firm saved from closure by Gentoo has taken on more staff.

Just weeks after being taken over by the Sunderland housing company, County Durham-based Romag has gone from strength to strength, and set up a new production line requiring an extra 20 staff.

Romag was bougth by Gentoo in March – saving 160 jobs – when it went into administration after hitting difficult trading conditions.

Managing director Phil Murray said: “Romag is committed to supplying the highest quality products in order to meet customer requirements, now and in the future.

“Working alongside our current team, the new staff will be instrumental in helping us to do just that.”
