Thirty new jobs as FastHouse ups production

By Margaret Canning

A Northern Ireland company specialising in the fast build of new homes has created 30 new jobs.

FastHouse, which is owned by Kevin Lagan, has said it's also taking on new joiners and design technicians in the second half of the year.

The firm now employs almost 90 people. Earlier this year, the company - based in Limavady, Co Londonderry - announced it had won a €233m (£204m) deal to build 470 holiday lodges for Center Parcs in Longford.

It comes after Mr Lagan announced the sale of the majority of his business interests, with the exception of Lagan Homes and FastHouse, to Breedon Aggregates plc.

FastHouse has also announced a new production line and the introduction of a second shift.

Managing director Stephen Bell said the changes "will potentially increase FastHouse's production capability to 1,500 units per annum", making it one of the biggest producers of off-site panelised wall systems in the UK.
