fireAlternative Heat is to create 23 new jobs with the expansion of its manufacturing facilities in Castlewellan, Co Down.

Alternative Heat, a renewable energy heating company, has been based in the town since 2003 and specialises in the design, supply, installation, commissioning and service of renewable heating systems for domestic, commercial and industrial applications.

The company distributes throughout the UK and Ireland, and now it has plans for expansion.

The  move comes with the help of an £85,000 investment from Invest NI to help finance the building of a new warehouse and associated yard facilities.

The 23 jobs will be in manufacturing its equipment, offering them the capability to win and fulfil increased contracts for biomass boilers, service and maintenance of biomass boilers and open loop heat pump solutions.

Connell McMullen, managing director of Alternative Heat, said: “We have continued to review the renewable industry throughout Ireland and the UK over the past 10 years and have developed our systems in line with industry demands to ensure we are best placed to increase our market share and build a platform for sustained growth.

“The 23 additional staff to be recruited over the next 18 months will include a range of managerial and operative roles and give us the scope to fully penetrate our target markets and capitalise on growth opportunities.”
