BS Holdings trebles workforce

Northern Ireland-based BS Holdings is set to expand its workforce to 30 to meet increased demand for its biomass systems.

The new engineering and management positions, which will be based at sites in both Antrim and Blackburn, will help fulfil a £600,000 order secured with car retailer Lookers plc.

BS Holdings is making an investment of £50,000 in a new purpose-built facility in Antrim to accommodate its plans for growth across Ireland and the UK.

Commenting on the investment, managing director Brian Hood, said: “We’ve had a fantastic year so far. Our focus has been on growing our footprint outside of Northern Ireland and this is paying off with an incredibly healthy order book with more than £2m of works in the pipeline for companies in Great Britain.”
