MOIRA construction company McMullen Architectural Systems has announced a new 12million contract to provide curtain walling for a major development project in Salford, Manchester.

The firm will provide curtain walling for a new BBC television and radio centre, along with a 16 floor hotel and 19 floor office building as part of a city revitalisation scheme.

The contract announcement is a further example of the successful growth of McMullen Architectural Systems, who were named exporter of the year at the Northern Ireland Showcase Build & Design Awards earlier this year. The Group, McMullen Group Holdings Ltd, which serves the UK, Irish and International construction markets, has doubled its turnover in the past two years to 50m and is expecting to reach turnover of 70m in two years time thanks to very strong order books.

Commenting, Managing Director Ted McMullen said: "This contract announcement is a major coup for McMullen Architectural Systems and further underlines our ability to compete for and deliver major construction projects in both the domestic and international markets. The company has experienced very significant

growth and we are confident we will continue this success over the coming years, despite the slowdown in construction. This is due to the specialist nature of the contracts we are involved in, and thanks to the expertise and quality of our staff."

Two years ago McMullen invested over 2 million in founding its US subsidiary, McMullen Inc, to meet demand for the company's growing international order book, with a prestigious client list including

the groundbreaking 40 Bond St townhouse and apartment development in Manhattan and Boston University's new Medical Centre.

In April, McMullen also announced its acquisition of Systems Aluminium Ltd (SAL), a prominent curtain wall contractor located in Cumbernauld Scotland, in a multi-million pound deal which has seen the company become the biggest UK based curtain wall contractor.
