EFC Group – which designs and manufactures instrumentation, monitoring, handling and control systems for the global oil and gas industry, has announced plans to recruit up to a further 30 people in the Highlands as part of its fast-paced growth strategy.

The announcement follows the launch of a new purpose built office, EFC House, at Enterprise Park in  Forres, which was officially opened last month Fergus Ewing MSP, Scottish Energy Minister.

EFC Group has already created over 20 jobs in the Moray region as a result of opening a first satellite base at the Enterprise Park in July 2012, and the service company is geared up for further international growth as a result of the  new electric and hydraulic production capacity that EFC House offers.

Bob Will, Chief Executive, EFC Group, said: “We have trebled our order book in the last three years and won a number of significant contracts in recent months, many of which have been thanks to the extended capabilities that our new Forres base offers.

“The additional capabilities now on offer have meant that we are able to handle larger and more complex projects, and take on more work than ever before.”


Louise McGowan, Commercial Director at EFC

The company also strengthened its management team – promoting sales and marketing manager Louise McGowan (above) to commercial director.  With over 15 years’ experience in sales and marketing,  McGowan was previously a commercial operations specialist at GE Oil & Gas, before joining EFC Group in 2001.

EFC Group employs 148 people across its offices in Aberdeen, Leeds, Houston, Singapore and Abu Dhabi. The Group also has international representation in Norway, Mexico, India and Brazil.
