150 new jobs are to be created by UK-based external maintenance and biodiversity business, Ground Control.

The expansion comes as part of a €5m investment into the market here.

The British business offers a range of external maintenance and energy solutions services.

These include grounds maintenance, winter gritting, arboriculture, solar, and electric vehicle charging point installation, amongst other products and services.

Ground Control will have its Irish headquarters in Dublin and a second office in Belfast.

It has already secured contracts valued at over €2m across the island.

“Our decision to launch the business in Ireland is an informed and strategic one, supported by the renewed commitment to sustainability on the part of both the Irish public and private sector,” said country director for Ireland, Declan O’Gorman.

“Irish organisations, ranging from local councils to major retailers, large manufacturing companies, and property and facility management companies, are actively seeking partners who share their dedication to delivering upon their sustainability targets through an evidence-based approach.”

The company’s model sees it partner and collaborate closely with field-based companies.

Its current clients include some of Ireland’s largest retail, manufacturing, property and infrastructure providers.

Ground Control currently employs 1,100 people across its UK operations and has annual revenues of €228m.
