Introducing eir… the new name for Ireland’s largest telecommunications company. The new face of the company formerly known as eircom reflects the dynamism and confidence of one of Ireland’s most recognisable brands. The distinctive brand reveal is a major milestone for the company, revitalising and modernising the look and feel of the Group.
In Northern Ireland, the company has been operating locally as eircom Business Solutions NI. Since entering the market in 2007, it has experienced continued success, growth and expansion, investing £20 million and creating over 50 full-time jobs. The new rebrand will see the company adopting the name ‘eir Business NI’ from today (Wednesday, September 16th, 2015) supported by an impactful new look and feel.
General Manager at eir Business NI, Darren Lemon, said: “The new identity reflects not just how far we have come but our real ambition to continue to deliver to the local economy through progressive ICT solutions as well as unlocking opportunities for enterprise businesses and public sector organisations. We’ve grown, we’ve invested and we’ve upskilled – the time is right to modernise our brand.”
Now known as eir Business NI, the company today announced annual profits for its UK business of £4.9 million for the year ending June 2015, placing it in a strong position as one of Northern Ireland’s top performing companies, grown organically in just 8 years.
The company has secured a series of major contract wins over the past 12 months contributing to a total turnover of £36.43 million for the year ending June 2015. eir Business NI currently works with major enterprises and organisations such as Wrightbus, Chain Reaction Cycles, Power NI and NIE, Northern Ireland Civil Service, Libraries NI and C2K Schools Programme.
Lemon, said: “This has been a very successful year for our business as we continue to invest in both our network infrastructure and our ability to deliver tailored solutions for customers.
“Going forward, eir Business NI will focus on helping Northern Ireland enterprises embrace the digital revolution and to drive growth in the local economy. We will also continue our work with public sector departments and agencies to further drive a connected government and one that can offer a better citizen experience.
“We’re proud to say that we have the largest pool of skilled and experienced engineers in Northern Ireland, and that expertise is reflected in the calibre of projects we have delivered over the years. We’re continually seeking ways to improve our service. Backed by a billion pound organisation, our local presence is delivering customers the platforms they need to take their business to the next level. We’re delighted to say that the new brand reinforces that for us.”
