Nottinghamshire-based Rototek is looking to fill 40 new positions at its Newark plant due to a significant increase in demand for its plastics manufacturing services.

Rototek, which has a second factory in Worksop and employs over 140 people, is one of the UK’s largest technical rotational molding companies and creates over 100 different products ranging from sailboats to water tanks.

With a sharp increase in orders, the company is undertaking a major recruiting process in and around Newark and is looking for new members to help it fill its order backlog.

Sean Conway, Managing Director of Rototek, said: “This expansion will significantly increase our manufacturing capacity, allowing us to expand our customer and product portfolio and create more jobs in Newark.

“We are proud to be one of the leading technical rotational molding companies in Europe and continuing to hire people who are passionate, hardworking and eager to grow with the business is key to our success.

“Making the decision to open the manufacturing facility seven days a week means we will be able to offer more shift models, which in turn will mean more flexibility for our team members. which became a priority for many people after the lockdown.

“We also hope that the new shift models will appeal to a larger population of workers – attracting people who had never considered this type of work before to apply.

“For those who are new to the industry, we have training in place and all employees are supported in their new roles. We’re a friendly bunch and it’s a great place to work – we have staff who have been with us for over 20 years which is amazing.
