Aberdeen company secures Caithness engineering jobs

Twenty-six jobs at a financially troubled Caithness firm have been secured.

Mowat Technical and Design Services (MTDS) was put into administration last month due to cash flow problems.

It has now been taken over by Aberdeen-based Enterprise Engineering Services Limited.

The new owner said the far north firm's name will be retained and all the staff have been given an assurance that their jobs were secure.

MTDS offers a range of services including surveying and fabrication work.

It has a turnover of about £2m and its contracts have included work at Caithness's Dounreay nuclear plant.

The Achlibster-based company was set up in 1997.
