TWENTY new jobs are to be created in Cork by heating solutions company the Sea Box Group.
The new positions will be in technical support for tradespeople and will be part of two new websites that are being launched by the company.
The two websites are part of a €1m investment and will be called 'Sea Box Shop' and 'NRG Store'. They will partner with various companies to offer products to customers. It is expected there will be 10,000 products available on both platforms by the end of 2019. Both sites will be selling items in Ireland as well as internationally.
Managing director of Sea Box Energy, Patrick Hogan said the company has plans to expand its operations in Cork.
“We are very excited about launching our two new online businesses. As a business we are very committed to developing our business in Cork which means new jobs and investment in the economy. Both businesses will be like the Amazon for heating supplies. This will all be managed out of Cork,” he said.
“NRG Online will allow tradespeople to plan their week’s work have it delivered from our multiple filaments centres around Europe in time for their needs onsite. We will also be offering finance options so that people will be able to spread the cost of the project,” he added.
Andrew Salerno, global marketing director for Sea Box Inc in New Jersey said: “Streamlining our parts business and making them more available to our global clients has been our plan since our office was set up in Ireland in 2016.” Sea Box Group owns Sea Box EMEA, NRG Awareness and Sea Box Energy Commercial.
