The Brandt Group of Companies has announced a plan to expand its workforce by more than 1,000 new hires by the end of the year.
The new positions will span the Regina-based company’s more than 100 locations, focusing on roles based in Canada and the United States.
“There’s no question that our people are the foundation of our success. In spite of some challenging times for the global economy, an incredible team effort has enabled us to sustain our business and weather the storm successfully,” said Shaun Semple, CEO of the Brandt Group of Companies. “Looking ahead, the growth trend for Brandt is strong, so the timing is ideal to make a major investment in our team.”
In the past decade, Brandt has expanded their employee base by 140 per cent to more than 3,400 people, with the pace of growth continuing to accelerate steadily. The new hiring initiative will see the company’s workforce grow by 30 per cent overall with the largest individual gains occurring in the company’s Regina, Saskatoon and Hudson, Illinois locations.
About half of the new hires will occur at the company’s Saskatchewan locations with 40 per cent more spread out across Canada and the balance in the United States.
The new hires will bolster Brandt’s existing operations in industries from construction, forestry and agriculture to rail, mining and steel. The positions will include skilled trades, sales, finance, marketing, customer support, IT and more, as the company expands its support team to meet the needs of a rapidly growing customer base.
“As life begins to return to normal and we look ahead to economic recovery, this is very exciting news for workers and their families,” said Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe. “Saskatchewan has what the world needs and Brandt’s success is a testament to the resiliency of our province’s industries in some of the most challenging global economic times.”
