Heat Merchants Group recently announced the creation of up to 75 new jobs in a €4million investment programme that will see the opening of nine new Heat Merchants branches and four additional Tubs & Tiles showrooms over the next three years.
This investment will increase the Heat Merchant Group’s branch network to 56 throughout the country and will increase its total workforce to 358. Heat Merchants Group is also increasing its central distribution and business support centre in Athlone with the addition of an extra 20,000 square feet of warehousing, which will extend its capacity to service its expanded branch network.
Heat Merchants Group is commencing a recruitment drive immediately to attract new colleagues into its expanded branch network and fill a range of other roles across its business.
Announcing its investment and expansion plans, Heat Merchants Group Managing Director, Alan Hogan said, “The last five years have seen the addition of 82 new employees, the opening of several new branches and the extensive renovation and rebranding of our existing branch infrastructure. This announcement marks an exciting next phase in our growth strategy which has been a key driver for the business over the last five years. Our new branches will be situated in locations that will offer convenience and expert advice and service to our customers, reducing their travel times to pick up vital products or spare parts wherever they are working.”
Heat Merchants are now recruiting for positions across the group.
