Social Media Assists Synergy Reach Long-Term Goals in 3 Months of Trading.

The new name in the fabrication industry in Fife is Synergy Fabrication Ltd based in Cuparmuir Industrial Estate. The business only started in December 2014 and is currently located in the premises previously vacated by Houston’s of Cupar.

Gary Mitchelson one of Synergy’s directors was focused on creating a stronger social media presence on Linked-In and added the Project Manager from Stolthaven Terminals to his network. This introduction lead to Gary asking if there were any future contracts his new company could pitch for. Synergy had pitched for the contact, they were the only British company to be shortlisted and found out last week they had won the £4 million deal for works on a bulk liquid chemical, bitumen and fuel storage facility in Essex. The new contact will result in the employment of 35 project based tradesmen and a further 20 permanent tradesmen.

Stolthaven Terminals, part of the worldwide shipping and storage organisation Stolt-Nielsen Limited,embraced the fact that the Management team has a wealth of experience, producing and installing high quality fabricated steelwork and pipework for the oil & gas, energy, petrochemical and general industrial sectors. With lean manufacturing, total safety and quality principles at the forefront of their vision.

Synergy offers fabrication and welding services for all industrial sectors, from the major oil & gas leaders, to local businesses. The highly skilled welding team specialise in high quality pipework, with a whole range of materials. The team’s reputation is allowing it to make its mark in the industry faster than anticipated.

“It is a huge honour to be awarded this prestigious contract so early in the development of our company, and is really a tribute to the professional efforts by the whole team at Synergy. Securing this project not only allows us to rapidly create high value employment, but also will give us a foundation to train and develop new young local talent for our industry.” stated Gary Mitchelson.

The Invest In Fife team liaised with the property owner and offered Synergy Fabrication support alongside Opportunities Fife, to help find apprentices and to be introduced to the Fife Engineering skills academy. Synergy recently employed two of the time served apprentices who were affected by the Houston’s closure.

“We are extremely excited that Synergy have won the Stolt-Neilsen project and will be creating project based and permanent jobs in Fife within the oil and gas industry.” Ross MacKenzie, Lead Officer for Invest in Fife.
