A SHETLAND business servicing the aquaculture industry is expanding into the western isles creating 12 jobs on Harris.

Net Services Shetland (NSS) has just taken over the mothballed Scalpay salmon factory, which had lain empty for the last three years.

NSS has signed a deal with Marine Harvest to service their farms on Lewis and Harris. The company also hopes that its new base could help attract business from along the Scottish west coast.

The company is a well established local business washing and mending and anti-fouling nets for the fish farming industry.

NSS managing director David Goodlad said the Harris branch of the company would realistically be opening in February 2009. He added that the venture would create up to a dozen new jobs.

"We are confident for the future. As long as there is work there we are hopeful to have an involvement in it," he said.

Net Services Shetland was formed in 1999 and the company moved to new premises on Blacksness Pier, in Scalloway the year after.
