Livingston James Retained by CuanTec to Appoint a Logistics & Procurement Manager

Livingston James is delighted to be retained by CuanTec, a ground-breaking biotech company ready to help make incremental changes that positively impact our world. Headquartered in Scotland, CuanTec is seeking an experienced Logistics & Procurement Manager responsible for managing the logistics and operations of both inbound and outbound products.

CuanTec’s scientists have developed propriety technology to biologically separate Chitin, proteins, minerals and lipids from shellfish waste, mushrooms and the exoskeletons of insects. The Chitin is further refined into more valuable Chitosan. The unique biological-based extraction process maximally preserves the original polymer attributes, unlike more aggressive extraction processes.

CuanTec is targeting a rapidly growing market for Chitosan due to its multiple uses across multiple valuable categories. At the same time, it continues to develop added value products derived from Chitosan, with its small highly skilled research and development team and in collaboration with external partners.

The company wants to reduce food waste and plastic pollution through its innovative approach, creating a viable, circular business with the well-being of our planet at its core.

The business is currently pre-revenue and is about to embark on an exciting new chapter as production begins at its first factory in Glenrothes. CuanTec’s ambition is to expand rapidly through further investment to exploit the market for waste-based sustainable, biopolymer-based products.

The Logistics & Procurement Manager will be responsible for:

  • Managing the effective and efficient delivery and storage of inbound feedstock (raw shell) and consumables (chemicals, energy)
  • Managing the efficient logistics to / from drying operation and the storage and delivery of outbound products (and by-products) to customers (national and international)
  • Sourcing suppliers for by-products and chemicals used in the production process
  • Negotiating contracts for the procurement, transportation, and storage of products

This is a fantastic opportunity to join a company on the cusp of exponential growth and to be instrumental in its development.
