Boilers contract creates 90 jobs

Dublin-based Sierra Support Services is to create 90 jobs after securing a multimillion-euro contract with Bord Gais.

The €60m three-year deal will involve the installation, maintenance and testing of domestic boilers.

The option remains to extend the contract for another two years, bringing the value to €100m.

TJ Malone, Sierra Support Services managing director, said it was a significant contract for the firm.

"We are delighted to have been selected by Bord Gais Energy as they grow their home energy services market," he said.

"This is a significant contract for Sierra and an important step in our strategy for growth."

Sierra will incorporate the existing Bord Gais energy services into a new division which will initially employ 20 new full-time staff in management and administration.

The company will also create a further 70 building jobs over the next year.

Separately, Sierra will also expand its services into the North with the opening of a new office.

Sierra is a leading services provider to the telecommunications, power and energy and civil engineering sectors.
