Our Position

Advanced Industrial Solutions has certainly felt the strength of business confidence and expects to double turnover year-on-year. It’s not just about turnover though, with the completion of our state-of-the-art Offshore Survival Training Centre, we are investing heavily; £2.5m in this project alone. This has already created 25 jobs and will create another 25 jobs over the next 18 months, comfortably doubling our workforce. Finally with more projects in the pipeline, including the imminent launch of an onsite, offshore themed hotel, AIS is certainly Raising Its Game.

Paul Stonebanks Comments:

“Today’s figures are great news for Britain and the North East. We are delighted Advanced Industrial Solutions has been able to contribute positively to the economic recovery and we are still growing; Along with investment in our facilities, we are creating jobs and upskilling our existing workforce.

“We have invested more than £2.5m in state-of-the-art facilities on North Tyneside, cementing the North East’s reputation as an accessible and affordable training location for industry as well as the global oil, gas, wind and maritime sectors.

“Meanwhile increased business confidence is allowing us to invest more heavily in our people. AIS Group has created 25 new jobs so far this year and plans to take on an additional 25 people within 18 months, doubling our workforce. This investment includes hiring a number of apprentices which we see as critical to the rejuvenation of British industry.”
