An east Belfast central heating company is set to expand into the Republic after obtaining contracts worth £1m.

Solv Group, which provides central heating maintenance to the public and local businesses, will create 10 new jobs after securing the new business. The company said recent growth was partly due to severe weather conditions and the growing awareness of the dangers of carbon monoxide.

But Solv Group said it had also developed new technology, including a system giving customers updates on the location of their engineer and allowing them to rate their service.

Solv managing director Stephen Kane said: “By incorporating innovative technology we have been able to significantly enhance our customer service and continuously improve.”

He said the firm, supported by Northern Bank, was also able to manage cash flow more effectively using the bank’s online service.

David Croft, business manager at Northern Bank’s Belfast finance centre, said: “Solv is a great example of an enterprising business effectively using technology to improve customer service and also to manage their business.”
