Hanley Energy CEO Dennis Nordan confirmed to Northern Sound that within 12 months it is expected that 150 people will be employed in the former John E Coyle factory in Monaghan Town.
Speaking to Northern Sound in relation to the announcement, Senator Robbie Gallagher said this was probably “the biggest” one-off job announcement here in some 30 years or more.
“It is super announcement for Monaghan Town and the surrounding area,” explained Senator Gallagher. “Tribute is due to Hanley Energy and also to the long-established John E Coyle facility and the work of Tony Coyle and his son Killian. It is through the endeavours of the Coyle family that this factory employed many local people over so many years and that the 70,000 square foot facility is now available for this exciting new development.”
“This is a fantastic investment by Hanley Energy, an Irish-owned company who are global innovators in Critical Power and Energy Management Solutions. It is a major boost for the economy in Monaghan Town. The company is bringing over 225 new jobs in total to the North-East with a significant expansion of its operations in Ireland, to meet the increasing demand for installation and service of its equipment which serves the growing critical power market and delivers on the high demand for power, connectivity and data. The range of positions that will be created are particularly welcome and will encourage more highly skilled young people to stay and work in Monaghan.”
“This is an Irish company that has become globally recognised and is leading the way in the rapidly growing energy efficiency and management sector. The company is recruiting talent including electrical apprentices, qualified electricians, general operatives, electrical and mechanical design engineers and associated administration staff across health and safety, finance, HR and production. Continued support from Enterprise Ireland has been invaluable in making this expansion possible.”
