Specialist fitout firm Mivan is to create up to 40 new jobs as part of a rectuitment drive to the end of the year.

The Antrim based company has enjoyed an increase in business with the start of several major new contracts in the GB market prompting the search for new talent.

Mivan is one of Northern Ireland’s leading businesses in the high end, land based interior refit market, the specialist joinery sector, and in the marine/cruise ship market.

It was bought by Rathfriland based entrepreneur Brian McConville in 2014. Since that time the company has been quietly reasserting its position in the marketplace and growing its orderbook.

The business recently strengthened the senior management team with the appointment of John Cunningham as MD and Liam Murphy as commercial director. Both men have more than 25 years’ experience in the construction sector.

John Cunningham said, “Mivan is an iconic brand in the Northern Ireland construction sector. We are delighted to have been constantly recruiting over the last number of months which will mean that by the end of this year we will have increased our workforce to more than 160 people.

“This is an exciting period of growth for Mivan which brings with it a wealth of opportunities for our long-established team as well as new recruits.”
