JT Spas Aims To Boost Sales In GB

Larne-based company JT Spas Ltd is aiming to boost its sales in Great Britain with support from Invest Northern Ireland.

Established in 2007 by Jim and Tracy McKnight, JT Spas supplies a range of shower enclosures and baths through its e-commerce website.

JT Spas has experienced steady growth over the past five years and to help the company achieve its full potential it has recently employed a new online marketing executive with support from Invest NI's Job Fund.

During a visit to the company Gren Armstrong, Invest NI’s North Eastern Regional Manager, commended Tracy McKnight on winning the Young Business Person of the Year award at the recent Larne Business Awards.

He said: "This energetic and ambitious firm is already selling 95 per cent of its products to customers outside Northern Ireland. Appointing an online marketing executive will give JT Spas the capabilities it needs to elevate its sales strategy to another level. As a result, Jim and Tracy will have more time to devote to growing their business."
