A diesel marine engine manufacturer based in Shoreham-by-Sea has announced it will recruit 15 new employees as it looks to boost production output.
Cox Marine has developed a new marine diesel outboard engine, the CXO300, which went into production in May 2020. With production now entering its second shift and about to ramp up, the company is now looking to fill another round of vacancies as the company seeks to meet the high demand for its engines.
The company has a global distributor network with a consistently growing order book and the business is seeking to fill 10 vacancies in its busy production team, three positions in logistics, two in quality, and a number of other positions in its sales and engineering divisions.
Speaking ahead of a careers open day the company is hosting on 23rd October, Richard Lind, head of enterprise excellence, commented: “This continues to be a very exciting time for everyone at Cox Marine. Not only is the CXO300 diesel outboard a truly innovative product, but we have also created a complex, high precision, ‘no-fault forward’ manufacturing facility using cutting-edge technology to deliver a game-changing and highly sought-after product for the global marine market.
“This is a great opportunity to join a fantastic team of people that are delivering a revolutionary engine.”
Significant investment, including an additional injection of financing earlier this year, means Cox Marine has been able to put in place state-of-the-art production facilities, with a smart technology-driven assembly line and an integrated Manufacturing Execution System (MES). This ensures exceptional quality standards are delivered to meet the ‘no-fault forward’ philosophy.
Smart technology is used throughout the production process with cameras and Wi-Fi-enabled DC tooling in place to ensure the flawless quality of each Cox outboard produced.
