Powering the world
“Due to increased demand from our export markets, we are expanding our manufacturing base in Dundalk and Monaghan to facilitate our continued growth,” explained Dennis Nordon, managing director of Hanley Energy.
“We will be recruiting top talent for these 225 roles over the next three months. These include electrical apprentices, qualified electricians, general operatives, electrical and mechanical design engineers and associated administration staff across health and safety, finance, HR and production. The continued support from Enterprise Ireland has made this expansion possible and we look forward to a successful recruitment campaign in the North-East region.”
Hanley Energy will open a new 70,000 sq. ft facility in Monaghan Town 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. Hanley Energy’s sustained growth over the last decade has been fundamental in recruiting, training and employing a world class workforce of over 650 people, of which 25% are skilled engineers.
“Hanley Energy is a highly innovative company delivering energy and power management solutions to multinational technology providers,” said Enterprise Ireland CEO Leo Clancy.
“We have worked closely with Hanley Energy since its inception to support its continued growth and expansion, and we are proud to support the company with the ambitious plans announced today which will create 225 high value new jobs in the North-East Region. Hanley Energy’s growth will play an important role in Ireland continuing to have a positive impact in the rapidly growing energy efficiency and management sector globally and enable the company to realise growth opportunities from the low-carbon transition.”
Hanley Energy owes its origins to when John Gilmore installed the electric light station at Kingscourt, Co Cavan in 1930. In 1946 the business was involved in the ESB rural electrification programme and by the 1990s was involved in major projects such as the installation of the main switchgear for Canary Wharf in London as well as the Channel Tunnel.
The company, which has offices in the North-East corridor, including Meath, Cavan, Louth and Monaghan, said the positions will include all levels, from graduates and apprentices to experienced professionals.
Today the business is a global innovator in critical power and energy management solutions, with a stable of world class engineers shared between its headquarters in Meath and North America. Its solutions involve delivering reliable power from the grid all the way to the data centre.
The investment was welcomed by Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment, Leo Varadkar, TD, who said:“This announcement by Hanley Energy is a real boost to the North-East region with new jobs and investment in Monaghan Town and Dundalk. I love to see multi-nationals investing in Ireland and creating jobs for people. But there is nothing I like more than seeing Irish companies grow and become exporters and global players in their own right. We are here to help make that happen.
“Hanley Energy is globally recognised and is leading the way as an innovator in the energy and power management services sector. Companies like Hanley Energy contribute to Ireland becoming a global leader and building on our excellent reputation and development of the industry. Today’s announcement is very welcome news for the team at Hanley Energy who have a bright future ahead, and I am confident they will recruit the very best of talent for these roles in the region.”
