Kilcock pipe restoration company Nu Flow last Friday announced the creation of 30 new jobs.
Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton TD and the Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government, Phil Hogan made the official announcement.
Nu Flow was officially launched in Ireland earlier this year by local TD Bernard Durkan, who was also present for the job announcementy.
Deputy Durkan noted: “I am very proud to be here today at such a fantastic announcement. Nu Flow has the potential to save the country millions on pipe restoration costs, using green technologies. I have no doubt that this county Kildare based company is set for major growth in the months to come.”
Nu Flow was founded in 1998, and its branches across the world install innovative green technologies to recondition the inner infrastructure of deteriorated or failing water piping systems.
Nu Flow Ireland patented technologies repair pipes with corrosion, build up or leaks. Companies and households in Ireland can expect to make a saving of over 50% on repair costs for damaged pipes.
The 30 new positions, which will be filled over the coming 36 months, will be in the areas of property and facilities management. These jobs will be suitable for those experiencing difficulty regaining employment in the construction industry. Following the announcement the Nu Flow team presented the Ministers with a piece of Newbridge Silverware to show their appreciation.
Technical Director of Nu Flow Ireland, Robert Finn commented: “This announcement is great news for Nu Flow and great news for the economy. It just goes to show that good ideas with the help of good people will always prosper no matter the climate and that research and development are key to success. We are very much looking forward to seeing our team expand across the country.”
“We studied Nu Flow for a long time before deciding to bring it to Ireland. The Nu Flow technologies are truly revolutionary, finally we have an Irish company that can reline any piping system carrying any material liquid throughout Ireland,” commented Robert.
