Construction Firm To Create 50 New Jobs

Thornton Roofing said the move is part of an £8 million expansion.

The firm, which operates throughout Ireland from its Toomebridge HQ, has recently won a series of high profile contracts within the health, education, heritage and leisure sectors that will serve as a platform for its five year growth programme which will include the recruitment of more than a dozen apprentice joiners.

Managing Director, Stephen Thornton, said: "Whilst we do work in the Republic of Ireland and Britain, from time to time, our core business over the last five decades has been drawn from Northern Ireland latterly in the form of projects at the Waterfront Hall, Belfast; Altnagelvin Hospital, the Museum of Free Derry and the Seamus Heaney Centre in Bellaghy. A key element in our growth programme, however, will be securing of contracts in England and Scotland."

As part of the growth programme Thorntons plans to expand its office accommodation and manufacturing facilities at Toomebridge with the addition of a new 1,000 sqm building.
