Company’s expansion creates broad range of opportunities.
Following a year of record growth in which the company added almost 2,000 people to its workforce, the Brandt Group of Companies has announced plans to create a further 1,500 new positions in 2022.
Headquartered in Regina, Sask., the Brandt Group of Companies is a privately owned manufacturing and distribution company that serves a number of industries, including construction, mining, material handling and energy. The company has more than 170 locations in Canada, the United States, Australia and New Zealand. The additional staffing gains will be spread across the company’s operations in Canada, the U.S., Australia and New Zealand.
“2021 was a record year for Brandt. We saw many market challenges, but our employees rose to the occasion and drove our company to new heights,” said Brandt CEO, Shaun Semple. “This success has created many more opportunities, resulting in another 1,500 new positions being created across Brandt in 2022.”
If the hiring goal is met, Brandt’s total workforce will have doubled in just two years, resulting in a projected total employee count of over 6,600 by the end of 2022.
About half of the projected new positions will support the company’s Brandt Tractor locations across Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Another 40 per cent will be focused on boosting manufacturing in Regina, Saskatoon and Illinois. The remainder will be in corporate support roles in the company’s Regina locations.
“With the addition of our large new training centre in Regina, we can offer motivated individuals the training they need to build a dynamic career,” added Semple.
Brandt is hosting career fairs across Canada and the U.S. in support of its hiring efforts.
