A Dublin based company, Accent Solutions is to create 100 new jobs over the coming 24 months, increasing its workforce to 133 by the end of this month and it is expected to reach 230 by the end of next year.
Since it was established in 2012, and under the stewardship of its Founders, Anne Ita Ryan and Martin McMahon, Accent Solutions in Glasnevin has gone from strength to strength. It specialises in providing a range of engineering and facilities solutions to the commercial, data centres, manufacturing and public sectors.
Focusing on energy management, facilities and engineering services, the company provides cost effective technical and operational solutions to enable its customers to develop their business while the same time assisting them with the management of their energy, facilities and expenditure. In recent times the company has been successful in winning a number of new contracts.
Announcing the new jobs, the Tánaiste and Minister for Social Protection, Joan Burton, T.D. said: “This is a great day for a young company going from strength to strength. By adding 100 jobs, Accent Solutions will also contribute to the wider employment recovery that the Government is driving. We will soon have more than 2 million people at work, and that’s because of strong economic recovery and dynamic companies like Accent growing their business.”
The Tánaiste also acknowledged the co-operation of Accent Solutions in assisting the Department of Social Protection by providing placements and work experience for jobseekers. “A central focus of mine has been transforming the Department from the passive benefits provider of old to an active and engaged public employment service. That has required the goodwill and cooperation of employers, and Accent Solutions was one of the companies that came on board to provide work experience and training for young jobseekers, many of whom had never worked since they left school. Martin McMahon also gave time from his hectic work schedule as MD of a company to address employers’ briefings and to become involved in a number of initiatives benefiting not just jobseekers but also local communities. Support such as this is immeasurable. I wish Accent congratulations on its work to date and continued success as you strive to grow your business and create jobs.”
DCU President, Prof. Brian MacCraith welcomed the announcement, stating that “the ‘Smart Buildings’ focus of Accent Solutions fits well with the Internet of Things (IoT) and Cleantech cluster of companies that has established itself in DCU Alpha, supported by the research capabilities of DCU’s Energy Design Lab, the INSIGHT Centre for Data Analytics as well as the Irish Centre for Cloud Computing and Commerce. We look forward to continued collaboration with Accent as they develop their business in Ireland.”
