Dixons is particularly targeting the social housing market in Great Britain, a sector in which it has substantial experience.

To support its move into the Great Britain marketplace for the first time in its 40-year trading history, Dixons is investing £248,000 in strategic growth. The investment covers spending on marketing, IT and the recruitment of seven new staff. Invest NI has offered over £83,000 of support.

D J Dixon, Managing Director, said: "We want to expand our customer base and market reach to reduce dependency on the local market and protect the future viability of the company.
