Mid Ulster-based paving manufacturer Tobermore is to invest £30million and create 95 jobs in ambitious plans to rapidly grow its business over the next four years.
The company is one of the leading paving and walling manufacturers and suppliers in the UK and Ireland.
Invest Northern Ireland has offered Tobermore £807,500 of support which includes support for its new production facilities in the Mid Ulster area, 95 new jobs and investment in new machinery to help meet the growing demand for its products.
David Henderson, Managing Director of Tobermore, said: “We have experienced extensive growth in recent years due to our exceptional product offering combined with our high levels of customer service, and in return have developed new products to meet the needs of our loyal customer base.
“This investment will put us in a unique position to exploit multiple markets in the coming years, with UK and Ireland our main priority markets. We are excited by the next stage of our growth plans, which requires the major expansion of our current facilities and significant investment in recruitment and marketing.
“We are delighted to have received the support of Invest NI as we move forward with our expansion plans.”
The company began recruitment earlier this year to help it meet customer demand, with 25 of the jobs already in place. A further 70 roles are to be created in areas including sales, operations and production.
