Donaghmore Construction Company Creates 12 New Jobs

A Donaghmore construction company has created 12 new jobs and says more could be on the way.

QMAC Construction has announced details of an investment programme over the next two years, which includes a secondary facility in Belfast.

The firm has also appointed a new managing director to oversee the its growth strategy in the coming years.

Established in 1982 by husband and wife team, Peter and Rhona Quinn, QMAC Construction currently employs 47 people and works across a wide range of sectors in the North – including commercial, heritage, sports and leisure, social housing, health and education.

The Tyrone company recently completed work on the exterior of St Patrick’s Church in Donaghmore.

Speaking today, Rhona Quinn, char of the company and the current president of the Construction Employers Federation (CEF) in Northern Ireland, said, “QMAC has maintained a steady workload over the last few years despite the severe challenges of the recession and, in 2014, we took the decision to invest in the long-term growth of the company.”

Eddie O’Neill is the man appointed as QMAC’s new managing director who will oversee the company’s development in the next few days.

“Our strategic plan is centred around setting ourselves apart from our competitors, opening up new markets and increasing our market share in Northern Ireland,” he said.

“Our philosophy is underpinned by the company’s commitment to quality in absolutely everything that we do.

“In recent months we have invested in expanding the strength and breadth of expertise across the company and have created 12 new jobs. We have recently been successful in winning several significant contracts and would anticipate creating further jobs in the coming months.”

Added Rhona, “It has been very encouraging to note that a number of these new roles have been filled by highly-skilled professionals who have returned to Northern Ireland having worked on major international projects such as the Shard in London and the world’s tallest building, The Kingdom Tower in the Middle East. This presents a vote of confidence in both QMAC Construction and the wider construction industry in Northern Ireland.”
