More jobs are being created in Moose Jaw after the Brandt Group of Companies announced earlier this month the opening of a new trailer manufacturing facility in the city.

Leading up to the opening of the new facility Brandt is holding a Career Fair on Thursday, July 28th, at their 76 Lancaster Road location from 3:00-6:30 p.m, at the city’s north end.

Tim Hogan, Yard Manager at the Regina North Location says Brandt is primarily looking to fill trades positions.

“Assemblers, laborers, production planners, engineers, supervisors, and more,” says Hogan.

Brandt is looking to hire various skill levels, as the company offers an in-house assembly training program.

“We have a new training program to become a professional assembler at Brandt, you don’t need any prior experience and you get paid your full wage while training.”

Those who are interested to apply for one of their many positions are asked to come down to Career Fair on Thursday, bring their resume, and an on-site interview will take place.

Moose Jaw was considered an ideal location for the plant, with its strong workforce and history as a center for trailer production. The move is being made to free up space at Brandt’s North Regina Works campus to expand production for other product lines currently being built in their Regina facilities.

The company also has long-term plans for additional expansion and more equipment purchases to outfit the plant to produce utility trailers for North-America-wide distribution.

The 64,000 ft² facility was originally home to General Cable and was purchased by Brandt in 2012.
