Specialist disability employer Shelforce is set to grow its workforce by 12 in the latest step of the company’s continuing expansion.

The Erdington-based company currently has 29 staff, with 21 full time, but this year it will increase its permanent staff to 33 – with the extra 12 including three new team leader positions.

They will include a fire door manufacturer team leader, a window manufacturing team leader and a storage and dispatch team leader, while Shelforce will also be bringing in two new staff into the office to help improve customer service.

Since launching its fully compliant Fireshel 30-minure fire, smoke and security resistant door in 2020, Shelforce has had to increase its manufacturing capacity each year and is currently producing 200 doors a week.

Business manager Howard Trotter said: “Demand for our fire door has gone through the roof and it’s hugely positive that we will be increasing our team by 12 off the back of it. It’s a big jump but it’s one we now need to make.

“It’s part of a three-year plan in terms of strengthening the team and we are hoping to follow the three new team leader roles for this year with a new production supervisor role and new operations manager role in 2024.

“I’m also looking forward to welcoming two new people into the office to improve our processing power as the busier we’ve got the more orders we need to process.”
