Production increase sees Cox Marine create new jobs
Cox Marine is currently recruiting more than 15 new employees to support an increase in production.
Backed by shareholders and private investors, the company recently developed the CXO300, a new generation diesel outboard engine, which went into production in May 2020. With production now entering its second shift and about to ramp up, the company is looking to fill another round of vacancies to meet increased demand for its engines.
Cox Marine has a global distributor network with a consistently growing order book and the business is seeking to fill 10 vacancies in its production team, three positions in logistics, two in quality, and a number of other positions in its sales and engineering divisions.
Richard Lind, head of enterprise excellence, said: “This continues to be a very exciting time for everyone at Cox Marine. Not only is the CXO300 diesel outboard a truly innovative product, but we have also created a complex, high precision, ‘no-fault forward’ manufacturing facility using cutting-edge technology to deliver a game-changing and highly sought-after product for the global marine market. This is a great opportunity to join a fantastic team of people that are delivering a revolutionary engine.”
Significant investment, including an additional injection of financing earlier this year, means that Cox Marine has been able to put in place state-of-the-art production facilities, with a smart technology-driven assembly line and an integrated manufacturing execution system (MES). This ensures exceptional quality standards are delivered to meet the ‘no-fault forward’ philosophy. Smart technology is used throughout the production process with cameras and Wi-Fi-enabled DC tooling.
Cox Marine is holding a careers open day on October 23 and those interested in the roles are encouraged to book an appointment by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Candidates should bring along a CV, and those with previous assembly experience are particularly encouraged to apply.
