A Mullingar company is celebrating after being awarded the first non-construction contracts for the Center Parcs Longford Forest project in Ballymahon.
Fagan Office Supplies has been chosen as the office furniture supplier for the site.
Center Parcs’ head of procurement, Martyn Smyth, said where possible Center Parcs Longford Forest is committed to using local suppliers.
Pat Fagan, the sales director with Fagan Office Supplies, has expressed his delight at winning the contract for the facility, which is scheduled to open in 2019.
The company employs 30 full-time and 10 part-time staff between their shop in Mullingar and a warehouse in the town, where most of the firm’s business to business is done.
The Center Parcs contract will start in June of next year and run for 12 months and Pat says it not only helps to secure existing employment but they’ll probably employ an additional two people to service it.
