Enterprise, Trade and Investment Minister Jonathan Bell today officially opened Kenwell Engineering Ltd in Dromore, Co. Tyrone, creating eight new jobs.

Kenwell Engineering Ltd is a new company established by Gareth and Charles Kenwell.

Jonathan Bell said: “Kenwell Engineering is a new employer in Tyrone and I welcome the opportunity to officially open its new premises. It is wonderful to see the growth of a locally owned company.

“As a result of the anticipated increase in business, the company has recognised the need to grow their staff and, with the support of Invest Northern Ireland, will be creating an additional eight jobs within the next year. These new roles will provide salaries above the Private Sector Median and contribute a valuable boost to the local economy.

“Invest NI has built up a relationship with Kenwell Engineering over the past year and has offered support which will enable the company to get into production straight away. This will allow the generation of sales, not only in Northern Ireland but in key export markets, to help support the future growth of the business.”

Gareth Kenwell said: "Our new business will focus on the development of a range of commercial equipment, together with the supply and fit of structural steel for agricultural and industrial purposes. We will also offer design consultancy services.

“We have already manufactured and delivered digger tracks to a customer in Denmark and we are currently working on a range of new products which we have designed internally.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Minister and Invest NI for their support and guidance which has been vital in enabling us to establish our business and all those involved in making today's opening a success.”
