Northeast Nutrition Scotland appointed Gavin Ross as plant manager at Invergordon Feed Mill and will help grow the production pipeline in the future.
Northeast Nutrition Scotland appointed Gavin Ross as plant manager at Invergordon Feed Mill. “Gavin comes with a strong background in manufacturing operations. His change management and continuous improvement capabilities coupled with his engineering skillset make him an ideal fit for this role. We will put his impressive and diverse experience to good use as we continue to increase our presence in the aquaculture feed sector. We would like to thank our departing plant manager, Michael Henderson, for all his hard work in helping to get the mill back up and running, and wish him all the best in his future career,” the company said.
Gavin Ross is an experienced engineering manager, most recently maintenance manager at SGL Carbon – a global leader in graphite and composite materials – at their Muir of Ord site. Prior to that Gavin was senior engineering manager for Johnson and Johnson with responsibilities across Medical Device manufacturing sites worldwide.
Invergordon Feed Mill was acquired by Cooke in September 2019 and restarted production in January 2020. Under the Northeast Nutrition Scotland banner, the mill utilizes MSC sustainably sourced fishery products that carry the Marine Stewardship Council’s blue checkmark. The mill has achieved Label Rouge and Organic accreditations and has full flexibility to produce feed for seawater and freshwater sites, across three production lines. The mill will supply feed to Cooke Aquaculture Scotland’s salmon farms in Orkney and Shetland, and will seek to develop new supply chain opportunities within the UK and global aquaculture sector.
