MIVAN, specialist interior fit out and joinery company in both land and marine sectors is recruiting 14 new positions as part of their ongoing growth plans as their order book continues to fill.
The positions include a Contracts Director, Superyacht and Expedition Vessels Business Development Manager, BIM Manager, M&E Manager, two Senior Estimators and Senior Project Managers as well as six new Apprentice Joiners.
The Antrim based company increased its turnover to £36.6m in 2019 with pre-tax profit increasing to £4.3m. The areas that saw the significant increase in turnover were the high-end residential, luxury hotel and commercial sectors, particularly in Central London, and Mivan’s marine division, delivering work for major cruise line corporations and superyacht builders across the world.
With the impact of the global pandemic in March, Mivan took strategic action to diversify their product and service offering with the launch of Mivan Modular Solutions. Offering a variety of bespoke options to suit all types of construction projects in residential, hospitality, commercial and marine sectors, options range from fully fitted ‘plug and play’ bathroom pods including tiling and sanitaryware finishes, to a unique Podwall system preparing fully functioning units off-site in their 110,000 sq. ft. factory near Belfast.
John Cunningham, CEO, Mivan said: “Despite the challenges of the past 12 months, I am pleased to be able to announce these additions to our team on the back of a healthy and growing order book. As well as a number of senior positions within the company, I am delighted that we will be building upon our apprenticeship programme, The Navigate Programme, and look forward to welcoming some new apprentices through our apprenticeship training pathway in September”
John went on to say: “The growth of the company is testament to the hard work of our team, our strong brand name and the exceptional quality of our work. On the back of that strong growth, we have continued to build our brand awareness with a refresh of our logo and website which launched in November.”
Mivan is one of Northern Ireland’s best-known fit out businesses, going from strength to strength, working on commercial, hotel and residential projects across the UK and Ireland, as well as outfitting in the luxury marine sector across the world. Recent projects include 20 Grosvenor Square, Chelsea Barracks and Freedom of the Seas with work recently commencing on The Broadway Development in London.
