Established in 1976, Solomon currently employs over 350 people and designs and manufactures refrigerated vehicles working with independent businesses to PLCs, dot-com enterprises and retailers.
We are a skilled and passionate workforce that produces approximately 3,500 vehicles a year from our seven operating departments in Rossendale, Darwen and Bacup, which equates to 240,000 sq. ft of production facilities.
The boost in job numbers has been prompted by a series of contract wins for high-profile retailers and increased demand for vehicles needed for businesses that have expanded home delivery services.
Anthony Clegg, sales director, said,
“Over the past two years we have been planning for, and achieving sustainable growth and combined with several contract wins complemented by repeat business, we’re in a fantastic position to expand our skilled workforce.
“Demand for our quality vehicles remains high because we’re driven by a partnership approach with our clients, which is underpinned by our commitment to innovation. In addition, we’re investing in the business, and we now need more people to join us.”
Various roles will be available across the business, including; commercial bodywork engineers, auto electricians, welders, storemen and drivers.
