Electrical Firm Announces 20 New Jobs

Enterprise, Trade and Investment Minister Arlene Foster has announced 20 new jobs at G R White & Son based in Tempo, Co Fermanagh.

The award winning electrical contracting company currently employs 35 people, providing a wide range of services. The new positions will include apprentice and qualified electricians, quantity surveyors and project planners.

Arlene Foster said: "The new jobs are a direct result of a decision by the company to focus on new opportunities in the Renewable Energy sector and the investment announced today will help to fuel future growth within current export markets.

"The expansion of G R White & Son will help create sustainable employment within the local Fermanagh area, as the new roles are for both apprenticeships and qualified employees. These jobs will suit people just starting out in their chosen careers as well as those looking to develop their current professional skills.

"G R White & Son is an example of the resilience, innovation and hard work which is characteristic of so many successful Northern Ireland family-run businesses. George White, Managing Director, and Rodney White, Operations Director, have seen persistent growth in the company over the last 40 years by continually targeting new opportunities.

"For Northern Ireland to prosper we must ensure that businesses are supported, new markets are explored and that companies are encouraged to compete by growing exports."

Invest Northern Ireland has offered £42,000 of support for six of the 20 new positions which are being created within the company.
