Fehily Timoney secures significant new contracts worth €2.5M
Cork-based engineering consultancy, Fehily Timoney & Company, has successfully turned its business around with a strategic focus on the Middle East. This is paying significant dividends with a series of recent contract wins worth approximately €2.5M to the business.
The company is now in the process of hiring an additional 11 people to work on new projects in the domestic market, Saudi Arabia and Jordan. The largest of these projects is the Jeddah Environmental & Social Master Plan in Saudi Arabia. This is a €10M high profile project covering a 150km x 50km area of the city of Jeddah and its environs. Fehily Timoney partners with Enterprise Ireland to help them tap into new international markets. The company’s focus on the Middle East has so far proved successful with approximately 30% of the company’s 2013 revenue expected to come from its Middle East projects.
“With offices in Dublin, Cork, Poland and Al Khobar, Saudi Arabia, we currently have 16 people working on Middle East projects out of a total head count of 78. Since last September we have recruited nine new people and we’re planning to recruit another 11 people in the next couple of months. Things are definitely looking up for our business and we have worked very hard to achieve that success. Our new recruits will help service our national and international projects in the coming 12 months and beyond”, said Managing Director, Eamon Timoney.
