Fast growing fit out firm opens new Belfast workshop
A BELFAST fit out firm has moved into new premises in response to growing customer demand.
Pure Fitout has opened a 25,000 sq ft workshop at Central Park in Mallusk, increasing its production capacity on site. As part of the major investment the company has purchased new machinery to ensure the continued delivery of high quality bespoke products for clients.
Pure Fitout has also brought its marble and stone abilities in-house, now sitting alongside its joinery manufacturing plant and metal fabrication shop, both of which are already on site.
Ronan Higham, founder and managing director of Pure Fitout said the investment will improve company operations.
“With third-party suppliers accounting for the majority of delays in the industry, it has always been our intention to bring as many operations in-house as possible to guarantee we can deliver projects to clients on time and within budget," he said
“Our investment in new machinery is aligned to the growth we have achieved over the past year and will ensure that we can continue to provide the high quality of delivery Pure Fitout has built a reputation for.”
In addition to the new facility Pure Fitout continues to invest in the next generation of shopfitters through its apprenticeship programme. In the last four years nine people have come through the programme.
"It’s vital for the future of the construction industry that companies such as ours play a key role in addressing the skills shortage. We’re committed to investing in the next generation of workers and at present have three apprentices based in our workshops, all of which are making a positive impact on our business," Mr Higham added.
Founded in 2015, Pure Fitout is consistently reporting 100 per cent year-on-year growth, supported by key contract wins including the award-winning Stella Theatre and The Devlin in Dublin and partnering with Five Guys in Ireland.
The company has further been responsible for the fit out of eight Boojum stores on the island of Ireland, as well as House on Belfast's Botanic Avenue.
