A SPECIALIST flooring firm in Rosyth is planning to recruit more staff to meet rising demand.

Advanced Traditional Screeding (ATS), based at Viking Way, is celebrating its 10th anniversary with plans to increase its workforce by more than 25 per cent.

The company has enjoyed consistent growth since forming in 2014 and with significant projects already in the diary, the coming 12 months promise to be the busiest yet for managing director Jason Lister and his team.

He said: "We have been on an amazing journey. I’m hugely grateful for all the clients who have put their trust in us and who have helped us get to this stage.

"Seeing the company grow as it has done since 2014 has been great.

“It’s also been really rewarding watching the development of the staff during that period."

A wide range of sub-contractors is complemented by 18 permanent members of staff in Rosyth, with that number set to be boosted by at least another four or five people to cope with the rising demand for pre-construction and construction flooring services.

Jason said: "A business is nothing without its employees and we have a strong team behind us who want to better themselves.

“We will be investing significantly in more staff this year as the diary is already filling up with some exciting projects involving high-quality flooring systems.

"We’re looking at the possibility of four-to-five new people starting over the course of the coming months, and that figure might increase depending on how things develop.”

ATS is a licensed installer for world-leading brands such as Flowcrete, Vebro, Energystore, Cemfloor, TLA, Mapei and Sherwin Williams among others.

The pourable, non-combustible insulation they use helps reduce carbon and saves time on projects too, while a partnership with Mapei Polyglass will see it deployed on roofs to help reduce costs and provide better insulation to this area too.

He added: “We’re extremely grateful to be in this position as it’s been a challenging time for the sector and many businesses within it.

“We’re not a company that ever stands still and are always looking to evolve in the marketplace and move forward.

"We have ambitious growth plans for the coming year and there are definitely more exciting times ahead which will require us to create a number of employment opportunities.”
