New Jobs For Some Ex-Connaught Workers

After the company who used to fix and maintain some council houses in Norwich went bust last year, a new contract has been given out for some of the services.

The company, Gasway, who are based in Norwich, and who specialise in the installation and servicing of gas appliances, boilers and central heating systems has been appointed as the principal annual gas servicing and responsive repairs contractor for Norwich City Council for the next 6 years.

It's after the fulfilment of a temporary contract, via Lovell, to provide Norwich City Council's tenants with services for emergency boiler repairs, as well as central heating breakdowns and installations. This contract followed the collapse of Connaught last year.

The contract, which starts on 1st April 2011, will provide gas boiler and central heating servicing and repairs for the council's 16,000 tenants.

Barry Ellis, Gasway's Director says, "We are delighted to be appointed as principal annual gas servicing and responsive repairs contractor for Norwich City Council. Our company headquarters are based in Norwich, so both our location and our expertise as gas specialists means we are well suited to supporting the needs of Norwich City Council's tenants. In these times of budget cuts, it's good to see the £9million contract appointed to a local contractor which ensures all the money spent stays in the local economy and benefits local people. We're also pleased to be appointing 20 ex Connaught staff to management, engineering and administration roles."

This contract fits with our growth strategy to develop social housing services alongside our core specialist gas servicing and maintenance business, including a growing boiler cover plan insurance service for domestic and commercial customers. This is an exciting opportunity to demonstrate our excellent customer service and further strengthen the Gasway brand."
