Moira Loughran, Invest NI's Eastern and North Eastern regional manager said: "I am delighted that we are supporting six Northern Ireland manufacturing firms to create 41 new jobs in an effort to help these companies drive growth in turnover and increase their export sales.

"Growing and strengthening our indigenous manufacturing businesses is at the core of our business strategy and these investments demonstrate that despite the global challenges facing certain areas of manufacturing, there is real opportunity for growth. In fact, based on data collected as part of our business strategy monitoring, the Advanced Engineering & Manufacturing sector saw the largest jobs growth on the previous year.

"The companies are making investments of £3.7million and creating valuable employment that once in place, will generate almost £1.2million in additional annual salaries for the Northern Ireland economy."
