By Hull Daily Mail | Posted: 24 Apr 2018.
Nine permanent roles at Tricoya Technologies Ltd’s wood chip acetylation plant at Saltend Chemicals Park are currently up for grabs, with almost 20 roles set to be released in the near future.
The plant is expected to open in early 2019, and is expected to create 130 jobs during the construction phase.
Mark Huddart, plant manager, said: "We are really pleased to be recruiting for the permanent roles for the Tricoya plant at Saltend and look forward to having the first phase complete by the end of May.
"The second phase kicks off straight after covering all the operational level roles and we hope to have a full team of 30 team members by the end of January 2019."
Roles currently advertised include a maintenance manager, shift operator, production engineer and day-time and shift supervisors.
The first hiring phase will create a lead team who will support the testing, commission and then full operations of the plant.
The second phase of recruitment – which will see almost 20 more roles - is planned to be completed in November, with all roles to be filled by January 2019.
The facility will manufacture acetylated wood chips, which will be used to make ultra-durable, non-toxic MDF panels, which, unlike traditional MDF panels, can be used for external construction.
The plant, once fully operational, will employ 30 permanent members of staff.
Paul Clegg, chief executive of Accsys Technologies PLC, has previously said however that the number could grow as demand for products increases.
He told the Mail last year: "This is very much a global product that is being produced in Hull. We hope to expand further in Hull in the future.
"That expansion could be two or three times the initial size. It is a long way down the road, but if all goes to plan there will undoubtedly be the potential for more jobs."
