Concentrix begins work on office site at Maysfield
US business services giant Concentrix has started building work on its new site at the former Maysfield Leisure Centre.
The main contract for the Grade A offices has been awarded to Newry contractor O'Hare & McGovern, which is set to employ 150 people as it builds on the east Belfast site.
It will be the fifth Belfast site for Concentrix, joining premises at Lanyon Place, River House in High Street, Lesley Exchange in East Bridge Street and Concentrix House in Fountain Street.
Philip Cassidy, senior vice president at Concentrix, said: "It is fantastic that the refurbishment of our offices is moving to the next phase.
"As leaders in customer service and technical support, the new 1,500 workstations and the redevelopment will be invaluable to our global business and local growth.
"It is a great opportunity to be able to redevelop a site which has been vacant for so long, while securing jobs in the city."
Finance Minister Mairtin O Muilleoir praised the firm, saying: "I have no doubt Concentrix's confidence in the future will impact positively on other potential investors and help rejuvenate Belfast along the Lagan."
