Bradford-based ventilation specialist Mansfield Pollard is taking on 12 new manufacturing staff after landing a major international deal.
The jobs have been made available after the company secured a contract worth £2.5 million with an international data centre operator based in the south of the country.
Mansfield Pollard will manufacture 12 bespoke air optimisation units and matched condensing units to be used worldwide.
There are a number of jobs available immediately ranging from project managers, panel wirers and pipework engineers who will work in a new data technology division that is being established as part of a restructure.
Finance director Joanna Robinson, said: “The customer came to us because this technology was not available elsewhere. Our bespoke solution, which is currently in the production and commissioning stages, is innovative because it is compact and extremely energy-efficient with very low electricity use, making it cost-effective and good for the environment.
“We are pleased to be supporting the local economy by creating jobs during such a tough economic climate. We are very keen to develop all seven product areas of our business by expanding our approach to research and development which is likely to create more senior positions in the company in due course.”
Mansfield Pollard plans to extend its manufacturing facility and invest in additional production technology as part of wider expansion plans likely to take shape later this year.
Founded by John Mansfield in 1866 as a sheet metal engineering company serving West Yorkshire’s textile industry, Mansfield Pollard employs 145 staff in seven product divisions manufacturing ventilation and air conditioning systems, acoustic and vibration controls, air handling units and kitchen extraction canopies units, fire-rated duct work and packaged automated control systems.
