An international project management firm has unveiled its new UK headquarters in Burton.
Malone Group, which was established in Ireland in 1999, has moved its UK headquarters to Skyline Court, in Centrum 100, creating 25 new jobs in the town.
The move follows a series of acquisitions to the business and provides the opportunity for up to 15 further roles in professional engineering and safety over the next 18 months in Burton.
Plans are also in place to offer employee training schemes to match the company’s Engineers Ireland program so that the company can be at the forefront of its industry and also develop the engineers of the future.
Stephen Malone, CEO at Malone Group, said: “Burton is the perfect location for us to grow. Malone Group specialises in working with the food and drink and pharmaceutical industries which are both growth areas for this location.
“As a company we have been operating in the UK since 2012 and we are keen to vary our scope of expertise to offer more to our clients. Recent acquisitions and the move to the central UK headquarters makes that possible.”
Opening the new site in Burton, the town’s MP Andrew Griffiths, who is also the Small Business Minister, said: “Malone Group’s relocation to Burton sends out a strong signal to the industry that the town is an innovative player in an ever-changing industry.
“Our location at the heart of the country puts us in a prime position and is just one of the reasons as a town we are seeing such growth in the industry.
“As Small Business Minister I am keen to develop further connections with the town’s successful businesses which are the life blood of our economy and the reason as a town we continue to thrive.”
Malone Group, which works with a variety of blue chip companies across Europe and Canada, offers a full project management service which ensures site safety, engineering and delivery are of the highest quality.
The move to the UK follows the company’s recent acquisition of recruitment company Mason James in Warrington, providing a further arm to the increasing team.
