Following record growth in 2021, the Brandt Group of Companies announced it plans to add 1,500 new positions throughout 2022.

Last year, the company hired about 2,000 people for new positions.

“2021 was a record year for Brandt. We saw many market challenges, but our employees rose to the occasion and drove our company to new heights,” said Brandt CEO Shaun Semple. “This success has created many more opportunities, resulting in another 1,500 new positions being created across Brandt in 2022.”

With the new goal, Brandt’s total workforce is projected to deliver a growth rate of more than 100 per cent in just two years, resulting in a projected total employee count of more than 6,600 by the end of 2022.

These additional staffing gains will be spread across the company’s operations in Canada, the United States, Australia and New Zealand.

About 50 per cent of the projected new positions will support the company’s Brandt Tractor locations across Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Another 40 per cent will be focused on boosting manufacturing in Regina, Saskatoon and Illinois. The remainder will be in corporate support roles in the company’s Regina locations.

“For anyone looking to join a private, family-owned business where they’re truly valued, Brandt has opportunities for skilled trades-people, business professionals, and new grads too,” Semple said. “With the addition of our large new training centre in Regina, we can offer motivated individuals the training they need to build a dynamic career here at Brandt.”

Brandt is hosting career fairs across Canada and the United States in support of their hiring efforts, with the next event planned today in Regina  and in Saskatoon  on Feb.17.
