Mechanical and electrical specialist EIC is recruiting as part of plans to expand services in the North East.
EIC's Gateshead office currently specialises in electrical installation in the food retail sector, counting Tesco and Asda among its client base. It will now also offer a fully integrated mechanical service to increase its current delivery capability while also offering the full range of building and facilities maintenance services.
The move will see the creation of a number of posts, from management to administration, and provide employment for local electricians and contractors. The company also plans to implement an apprenticeship scheme to develop the talents of local young people.
Under the leadership of Divisional Director Paul Fitzpatrick, the planned expansion will compliment EIC teams currently working from Manchester, Leeds and Edinburgh.
The ultimate vision is to create a stand alone centre by 2012 providing the full range of EIC services for clients across the North East.
Ian Lyall, joint managing director of EIC, said: “This is an exciting time for the North East which is home to a thriving business community and has drawn significant national and international investment in recent years, bringing huge benefits to the people and the economy of the area.
'Expanding our Gateshead office presents the perfect opportunity for us to build on our existing relationships, develop further and contribute to the success of the area.”
The north east team will be led by divisional director Paul Fitzpatrick.
