Engineering firm builds for future

A Co Londonderry engineering company is investing in new premises and is creating seven jobs to help support growth in the UK and Ireland.

Air Cool Engineering (NI) Ltd is a heating, cooling and ventilation services contractor and currently employs 25 people at Limavady Business Park.

The new building on Scroggy Road will also act as a call centre to service its UK and Ireland client-base, which includes major retailers and independent businesses from the hospitality, leisure and health sectors. Planning approval was recently received for the 2,000 sq ft investment, with development work beginning this week and set to be completed by early summer 2013.

In addition to construction jobs and seven permanent new posts, further employment opportunities are planned.

The investment has been supported by lending from Ulster Bank. Martin Mullan from the firm said that by continuing to develop and export business skills outside of Northern Ireland, as well as locally, the company has been able to grow. He added: "As a business from an area hit hard by the recession, we have a social responsibility to develop skills locally and provide opportunities for the talent on our doorstep."

Ulster Bank's Mark Johnston said: "Air Cool Engineering is an innovative company with strong corporate and SME clients across Northern Ireland, elsewhere on the island and elsewhere in the UK. We are confident that the investment will help the firm to continue to develop and grow."
