Bowtech Products, a global subsea vision systems company, has been selected by the judging panel of the Grampian Awards for Business Excellence as finalist in the ‘Employer of the Year’ category 2014.
Bowtech Products, now in its twenty-fifth year, designs, manufactures and supplies vision products to underwater and harsh environment markets. Bowtech has an excellent record of retaining staff: 38% of the workforce has been in their employment for over 5 years, 15% of the staff has served over 10 years and 9% over 15 years. Brian Hector, the longest-serving employee and now Technical Director, says, “Bowtech is a great place to work; I’ve been here since I graduated from University and have never looked anywhere else”.
Getting to the finals is an achievement in itself considering the Awards, which are in their fifteenth year, received a record number of registrations from local businesses, resulting in a 16% increase in applications. The next stage is the final judging and filming day in May followed by the gala awards dinner on 26 June.
