Irish firms reap Olympics rewards

Irish companies and contractors have so far secured more than £130M worth of work for the 2012 Olympic Games, it has been announced.

Construction firm John Sisk and Son, building company P Elliot and manufacturer Techrete, all of which won deals to help build the athletes’ village, are just a few of the firms to benefit.

The Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA), the body tasked with overseeing the development of the project, said it was very pleased with the level of work so far and planned future exhibitions with development body Enterprise Ireland to attract further business.

“Many Irish companies have already made the most of the golden business opportunities available.”

John Armitt, ODA chairman

ODA chairman John Armitt said: “Businesses of all types and sizes are helping to deliver the London 2012 Games and many Irish companies have already made the most of the golden business opportunities available.”

The seminars will take place at Enterprise Ireland’s head office in Dublin.
