Nottinghamshire firm Rototek is looking to fill 40 new positions at its Newark factory due to a significant increase in demand for its plastic manufacturing services.

Rototek, which has a second factory in Worksop and employs over 140 people, is one of the UKs biggest technical rotational moulding plastics businesses and creates over 100 different products ranging from sailing boats to water tanks.

With a surge of orders, the business is undertaking significant recruitment in Newark and the surrounding areas and is looking for new team members to help fulfil its order book.

Sean Conway, managing director at Rototek, said: “This expansion will significantly increase our manufacturing capacity, enabling us to broaden our portfolio of clients and products and to provide more jobs in Newark.

“We pride ourselves on being one of Europe’s leading technical rotational moulding companies and continuing to hire passionate, hard-working people who are eager to grow with the business is key to our success.

“Making the decision to open the manufacturing facility seven days a week means that we will be able to offer more shift patterns that will in turn mean more flexibility for our team members, something that has become a priority for many people post-lockdown.

“We also hope that the new shift patterns will appeal to a wider demographic of workers – attracting people who had not previously 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 role. We are a friendly bunch and it’s a great place to work – we have staff that have been with us for over 20 years which is incredible.”
