SPECIALIST glass company Topglass in Toomebridge plans to grow its workforce by 20 per cent, taking the total numbers employed to close to 40 in the coming weeks.

Topglass, which was acquired by the McConville family in May, is a sister company of MJM Group in Newry and Mivan in Antrim.

When the acquisition was made, the company vowed to grow the business by capitalising on its strength within a group structure and by driving key products such as Pilkington Profilit, of which Topglass is the agent in UK and Ireland.

Topglass recently recruited John McLaughlin as general manager to strengthen the senior team and is now recruiting for a variety of roles across the business including in the contracts, quantity surveying, sales, design and estimating departments.

Mr McLaughlin said: “We're delighted to already be showing growth in the business which is enabling us to launch this recruitment drive for more people.

"Our existing team comes from a variety of backgrounds in construction, architectural art and design, business management and finance.

"This core talent comes together to make a highly skilled, diverse and effective team with a positive attitude and a supportive culture.

"We have earmarked several niche areas for growth which will help us to deliver on our ambitious plans.”

Group director Conleth McConville added: “We could see the significant potential for growth when we purchased Topglass and now is the time to offer the highly effective team extra support to take the business to the next stage of growth.”
