A Co Tyrone construction firm is creating 38 new jobs as part of a £10m expansion.

Headquartered in Dungannon, the McAvoy Group which delivers fast-track design and build projects comprising permanent buildings, extensions to existing buildings and hire modules has plans to grow its turnover to £100m by 2020.

The multi-million pound investment over the next four years will enable the company to grow its 'permanent modular construction division' as well as investing in IT infrastructure as well as creating 38 new roles.

Invest NI has offered £198,000 to support the creation of 18 of the jobs and £135,000 under it Skills Growth Programme towards the company’s training activities.

Economy Minister Simon Hamilton said: “The McAvoy Group has been a leading player within the offsite modular construction sector in Great Britain and the Republic of Ireland for a number of years.

“The company is driving forward a robust growth strategy targeting new clients and procurement frameworks in the healthcare, education, residential and commercial markets. This multi-million pound investment will help the company to achieve its ambitious growth targets as well as contributing additional salaries to the local economy.”
