Jobs Boost From Medical Firm

Some 50 jobs are to be created soon thanks to a medical equipment manufacturer's plans to develop its business in Northern Ireland.

Lir-Med, which produces equipment for surgical procedures, will initially employ 10 people at new premises in Craigavon from June.

Over the next two years they expect a further 40 jobs will be created.

Meanwhile, Invest Northern Ireland has secured a 10 acre site in Armagh as part of a £3m project to support future investment opportunities in the region.

The site at Edenaveys is the first to be purchased as part of Invest NI's land acquisition strategy which aims to secure industrial land in four priority areas across Northern Ireland.
