Jones Engineering Group currently employs over 4,000 people with a turnover of circa €750m per annum and a training budget of in excess of €2m. Operating throughout Ireland, the UK, Europe and the Middle East, it delivers projects in the data centre, medical, life sciences, building services, industrial, semi-conductor, and power and energy sectors.
Jones Engineering Projects
As an industry leader in the data centre sector, Jones Engineering delivered over 215MW for the world’s largest tech companies in 2020, bringing its combined total to in excess of 1,100MW. In Ireland, it completed a Kelwin-2 battery storage project for Statkraft in Kerry. This is the largest battery storage facility in Ireland to date, with 26MWs of battery storage installed. Throughout the pandemic, Jones Engineering has continued to work with over 90% of the world’s leading life-sciences companies. Its current project with WuXi is a new 48,000-sq-metre facility in Dundalk, and when complete, it will be the world’s largest single-use biologics manufacturing plant.
Jones Engineering has a long history of working with the HSE across most of the major hospitals in Ireland. Jones installed the complete mechanical services to St James’s Hospital in the original energy centre and has been providing maintenance services in various capacities since.
Journey through Covid-19
Jones has been in business for over 130 years and has weathered the impact of wars, recessions and now a global pandemic. It has managed to keep its exceptionally strong teams intact during this pandemic, and in addition, its workload resulted in it employing 571 new people in 2020. This was achieved by adapting to phone and online interviews as well as virtual careers fairs. Jones’ management says none of this would have been possible without its outstanding teams’ exceptional dedication, innovation, and commitment. As a multi-national contractor, the strength of its teams is not just in its breadth but also in its diversity. Jones Engineering believes in equal opportunities for all employees and has achieved higher than the industry average in relation to gender diversity and female employee participation.
Community Engagement and CSR
Jones Engineering has a tradition and culture of encouraging cooperation and partnership with its clients and within its local communities. Throughout these challenging times, Jones continues to support local teams, charities, educational facilities, and clubs, both in Ireland and abroad. It has maintained its support of the ESB Science Blast since its launch three years ago. This is a STEM education programme designed and delivered by the RDS. It is one of the largest science education programmes for primary schools of its kind anywhere.
Following the opening of the Jones Engineering European office in Utrecht, the Netherlands, it has been developing a schedule of community outreach events over the past number of years. Most recently, it installed much-needed air conditioning in the Red Cross offices and store in Lulea, Sweden.
Eric Kinsella, Executive Chairman, Jones Engineering, recently announced a donation of €30m to help fund Trinity College Dublin’s planned docklands campus expansion.
Jones Engineering continues to focus on supporting, enhancing and powering the communities it works in through real and lasting engagement.
