Fusion with Helm Housing enhances service & jobs growth

20 January 2015

Fusion Heating, a heating installation and maintenance company based in East Belfast, has been awarded a contract with one of Northern Irelandâ??s largest social housing providers, Helm Housing Association. The deal will see a partnership-based gas boiler maintenance service provided by Fusion for Helm Housing Associationâ??s 5,600 properties and 15,000 tenants across Northern Ireland. This new contract will also see the creation of eight jobs at Fusion Heating.

 

The new contract will see an enhanced service for tenants as a result of the implementation of modern service delivery practices and an increase in staff numbers. The eight new Fusion Heating jobs include two multi-skilled builders, one electrician, three plumbing apprentices and two administrators. In addition, as a sign of both firmsâ?? commitment to training and development of young people, one of the apprentice roles is being supported by Helm Housing Association. This apprentice will spend their four year training programme working solely with their properties.

 

Michael McDonnell, Chief Executive Officer at Helm Housing Association said, â??Helm Housing Association is dedicated to building safe and sustainable neighbourhoods and making sure people feel comfortable in their homes. Ensuring that gas boiler maintenance is completed quickly and effectively is an important part of this work and we are delighted to be renewing our contract with Fusion Heating which will deliver an enhanced service to tenants.
