Chamber Member Firmus Energy holds open day for local natural gas installers

More than fifty firmus energy natural gas installers along with a number of local manufacturers came together to hear about firmus energy’s growth plans for the Coleraine area. The event, organised by firmus energy and held at the Dunsilly Hotel in Antrim was a chance for installers and other local businesses to come and hear the company’s plans for Coleraine.

With more than 7,000 natural gas customers in Coleraine, firmus energy continues to extend its pipeline, connecting over 2,000 natural gas customers in Northern Ireland every year. In Coleraine alone, between 2006 and 2017 firmus energy have invested more than £12million and continue to have plans for further growth. The anticipated investment for 2018 in Coleraine is in the region of £720k.

With this potential growth comes demand, particularly for top quality installers who can manage natural gas connections and work with the current local firmus energy advisory teams to identify new opportunities to connect homes and businesses.

Paul Stanfield, Director of Sales, Marketing & Customer Operations at firmus energy said:

“We are continuing to grow our customer base, both domestically and commercially and are investing across our ten towns to provide real choice for customers. None of this would be possible without our Gas Safe Installers and manufacturers who we work with to ensure a seamless service provision across the board.

Our investment in the ten town’s area as a whole is more than £110million with more than 10,000 further possible connectable properties in the ten town’s area. This shows the real potential for growth for our installers and manufacturers. I was pleased to see so many of them here today, engaging, planning for the future”.

During the breakfast event, Paul Stanfield spoke to the group about the company’s plans for the future. The natural gas company also provided advice and guidance on marketing opportunities they could avail of to ensure they get their business recognised.

Paul Stanfield continued:

“This event was about more than just outlining our business plans and how our installers can fit into that. It was also about providing advice, guidance and support where they most need it. We are keen to provide them with the tools to grow so that we are both on a solid footing for future growth”.
