Lisburn firm OKTO Technologies creates 20 jobs

  • OKTO Technologies has announced 20 new jobs in its Lisburn office following success of its OKTOair system that can remove the Covid-19 virus from the air in buildings.

    Back in August, Lisburn-based tech firm OKTO Technologies announced the creation of its new air filtration system and wellness division OKTOair. The group developed a new system that can remove 99.98% of Covid-19-causing virus particles from indoor air within 10 minutes, and uses sensors to monitor air quality metrics such as CO2 and contaminant levels in realtime.

    Thanks to a surge in new business following the launch of the system, OKTO Technologies is now creating 20 new jobs at its Lisburn office. The new positions include IT, BMS and Electronic Security Engineers, Project Managers, Engineering Designers, Software Developers, Electricians, Estimators, and Business Development roles.

    The company has planned an ambitious growth strategy to reach £70m revenue and triple the size of its workforce by 2025, so more jobs will follow. The 20 new roles on offer now are based in Northern Ireland but will also involve the opportunity to work on OKTO's projects in London where its technology is being integrated into a new generation of high-end apartments.

    Philip Dowds, Managing Director of OKTO Technologies said: "We have earned a great reputation for our expertise, innovation, high level end-to-end contract management and uncompromising attention to detail. As such, demand for our full range of services has grown dramatically and this has created great opportunities to join our team."
