Multi-million pound orders see engineering firm embark on recruitment drive

Around £4 million of orders were placed in January at GAME Engineering, which specialises in materials handling solutions and security products for use in custodial services.

The Lincolnshire business is now embarking on a significant recruitment drive as a result of the new contracts.

The company has secured a multi-million pound order to supply security metalwork for a new prison that will be built in Leicestershire. The company has also been asked by a grain storage and marketing company to add an extra 10,000 tonnes of storage capacity to its Lincolnshire site.

Established in 1986, GAME Engineering originally resold and installed second-hand milling equipment but has evolved into a multi-disciplinary business.

In its last financial year, the company reported a turnover of over £10m. GAME Engineering currently employs 58 people full time, but this is expected to exceed 70 by the end of 2021, as additional fabricators and site installers are recruited.

“Last year was exceptional for us,” says Stuart Hasler, GAME Engineering’s Custodial Director. “Despite the very challenging conditions, we managed to keep everyone safe and complete many projects. Our market-leading presence in the custodial services sector made 2020 one of our best ever years.”

Adam Conroy, Project Sales Director, adds: “It is great to start 2021 with these new contracts, which means we have a large confirmed order book for the year ahead. With these new contracts and the other promising enquiries, we have received since returning to work in January, means we need to take on more people in a time when there’s a lot of economic uncertainty.”
