Doug Sawers, Managing Director for SD Worx UK & Ireland said: “Our Ireland business has such an exciting future ahead as part of SD Worx. Ireland is such a key market for us, and we are investing significantly here to grow the already very strong team and presence as demand for our top-rated service expands.”
