A Dungannon company which was started in 2013 is to create almost 70 new jobs, it has been revealed.

The 67 new positions being created by McCann Cabling Solutions (MCS) are to service contract work for the KN Group who has successfully won major business across the UK.

Headquartered in Benburb just outside Dungannon, the firm provides a range of services to telecoms and utility companies, specifically around internal and external cable installations and associated ground works.

The new employees will fill construction roles and vacancies as fibre cabling engineers.

The expansion has seen MCS open new offices in Dundee and Banchory in Aberdeenshire.

Ignatius McCann, Director of MCS, said: “Since establishing the business in 2013 we’ve witnessed rapid expansion as we service the roll out of fibre broadband to rural areas and premises across UK mainland, Scotland and Ireland.

“We currently employ 83 staff and by the end of this year we expect that number to exceed 150 in total.

“Our commitment to deliver projects on time and to budget with safety paramount, has seen our client base swell in the last year.

The plans for expansion also included the purchase of six new Volkswagen Crafter vans from the Donnelly Group.

Raymond Donnelly, Director at the Donnelly Group said: “We’ve supplied MCS with a large selection of Volkswagen vehicles over the past number of months to suit the various demands of their business.

“The six Volkswagen Crafter vans were specifically built for MCS and we’re delighted to partner the firm as the business continues to flourish.

“Over recent months, the Donnelly Group has seen a significant rise in the number of businesses leasing or purchasing vans, as more and more firms realise expansion plans now that consumer and business confidence has returned.”
