Industry News
July 2021

The Brandt Group of Companies announced plans to make a major investment in staffing and will hire more than 1,000 employees by the end of 2021. The new positions will span the Regina-based company’s 100-plus location, international network with a focus on roles in Canada and the United States.

“There’s no question that our people are the foundation of our success. In spite of some challenging times for the global economy, an incredible team effort has enabled us to sustain our business and weather the storm successfully,” said Shaun Semple, Brandt Group of Companies CEO. “Looking ahead, the growth trend for Brandt is strong, so the timing is ideal to make a major investment in our team.”

During the past 10 years, Brandt has expanded their employee base by 140 per cent to more than 3,400 employees, with the pace of growth continuing to accelerate steadily. The newly announced hiring initiative will see the company’s workforce grow by 30 per cent overall, with the largest individual gains occurring in the company’s Regina and Saskatoon,Sask., and Hudson, Ill., locations. Half of these hires will occur in the company’s Saskatchewan locations with 40 per cent more spread across Canada, and the balance in the United States.

The new hires will bolster Brandt’s existing operations in industries from construction, forestry and agriculture to rail, mining and steel. The positions include skilled trades, sales, finance, marketing, customer support, IT and more, as the company expands its support team to meet the needs of a rapidly growing customer base.

“As life begins to return to normal and we look ahead to economic recovery, this is very exciting news for workers and their families,” said Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe. “Saskatchewan has what the world needs and Brandt’s success is a testament to the resiliency of our province’s industries in some of the most challenging global economic times.”
