Penman Engineering firm in Dumfries is now employing 50 staff, after being saved from closure last month.
The new owners say most of the workers are former employees who were made redundant after the firm went into administration.
The company says it hopes to increase the workforce to 140 by summer 2017.

Dumfries and Galloway council have appointed a new Town Ambassador, to increase "engagement with local community groups".
Lorraine Wilson, a former Community Safety Officer, was given the role, which includes providing information for visitors and supervising street cleaning.
The Peoples' Project, who jointly fund the role with the council, say it is also a way of improving the town's services and supporting the community:
This is an exciting project for the people of Dumfries and I hope that the public will embrace it, but also give Lorraine time to make a difference. Rome wasn't built in a day, as the saying goes, and neither was Dumfries, but by working together and listening to positive ideas from the public we can better support a community that we can all be proud of.
Traders in Dumfries say 18 businesses have closed in the past four months.
This week Scottish Enterprise announced it was starting a service in Dumfries and Galloway to support retailers.
But traders in the town say that without urgent help, the situation is likely to get worse.
I think it's very close to becoming a ghost town, as are all small towns in Scotland now.
They are all on the edge of disaster. We are not doing enough to make it easier to shop in the town centre.
We are standing in a big pedestrianised area, people like their cars to go shopping, but they can't take their car anywhere near our town centre because there's just no access.

Administrators have confirmed that 60 staff members have been made redundant at Penman Engineering Ltd in Dumfries.
15 jobs currently remain at the firm.
The company went into administration on 31 August 2016.
Penman had been in business since 1859 and employed around 140 people.
The administrators, Armstrong Watson, released this statement:
Yesterday (Thursday 29 September 2016) was a very significant day in the administration of Penman Engineering Limited. Whilst all staff have been working very hard and co-operating fully with the administration team on site to move trading forward the decision had to be taken by the administrators to make 60 staff redundant. Delays in receipt of certain funds from customers meant that the administration did not have the cashflow to maintain a workforce of 75 people, and could not make the various payments to employees at the time normally expected by employees under their contracts of employment. The administrators have been seeking recovery of those funds from customers, and will continue to do so. All staff affected will be kept informed and payments will be made as soon as funds become available.
15 employees have been retained by the administrators to help complete various tasks relating to the collection of remaining debts and the ongoing sale of the business.
A foodbank in Dumfries could be forced to close its doors for good, if volunteers don't manage to raise £20,000.
The First Base Agency hands out around 5,000 food parcels every year.
But growing demand means the cost of running the service is increasing.
The foodbank's founder, Mark Frankland, says they have enough funds to keep going through a busy winter, but will need to close in 2017 if they can't raise the cash.
He's asking people to take on a challenge - to survive on a food parcel for half a week, and in doing so raise money for the foodbank.
