Ross-shire Engineering (RSE) has opened its new facility in Deephaven, Evanton, located within the Inverness and Cromarty Firth Green Freeport zone and its expected to create 20 new jobs.

As part of this significant expansion, RSE has invested £1.2million in equipment to enhance its production capabilities and support the growing demand driven by investment from UK Water Companies.

The new Deephaven facility will house the latest technology, including a 3D Robotic Plasma Cutting Machine. It significantly reduces fabrication preparation time by 60 per cent, minimises Hand Arm Vibration, and enhances the quality of the cut and fabricated items.

The Deephaven site spans two acres and includes two workshops, equipped with 10-tonne overhead cranes.

Stephen Slessor, chief executive of RSE, commented on the investment: “We’re thrilled to bring this new facility to Deephaven, which represents a significant investment in the future of water technology.

“Not only does this expansion allow us to enhance our production capabilities, but it also brings new jobs and opportunities to the area. As we look towards the AMP8 investment from UK Water Companies, we’re committed to delivering innovative, high-quality solutions that meet the evolving needs of the industry.”
