One of the UK’s leading interior fitout and joinery specialists, Northern Ireland-based Mivan, has announced a record order intake in excess of £100m following an increase in demand for its services, particularly in the 5* hotel and premium residential sectors in London.

100 new jobs have just been announced to support Mivan’s continued expansion and the next phase of a multi-million-pound capital investment programme is also underway.

John Cunningham, Chief Executive of Mivan, said, “This strong performance is down to our clear strategy and a really exceptional team across the business and at every level. This has resulted in a high level of repeat business from the UK’s leading developers and contractors. We have a healthy balance sheet, have diversified into a wide range of sectors, and have developed an international reputation for our specialist fitout services.”

“It is great to see so many world-class developments being fitted out with bespoke joinery manufactured in Northern Ireland. As a result, we remain on target with our ambitious growth strategy and will continue to invest to the benefit of our customers and stakeholders.”

The record order intake includes:

  • A high specification fitout project worth in excess of £17m for Multiplex for One Nine Elms – a brand new 5* hotel in London, due for completion by the end of 2023,
  • Fitout projects worth more than £8m for Prime Development and Sir Robert McAlpine for the Peninsula Hotel on Grosvenor Place in London for bespoke joinery for front-of-house areas.
