Several Londonderry-based companies gathered yesterday at Invest NI's Timber Quay offices to showcase their investment projects supported by Invest NI.

Simon Hunter of Hunter Apparel, Jonathan Lecky of Fleming Agri, Liam Gallagher of All Pipe Engineering and Patricia MacBride of SmithDehn attended the event and spoke to media about their growth plans and how their business is benefitting from it's partnership with Invest Northern Ireland.

This media event was an opportunity to highlight the growth and ambition of firms in the City operating across a range of sectors; from engineering and manufacturing to software development and sales marketing.

These businesses along with Modern Democracy, Quinnspares and Steam Generation Services have benefited from a range of Invest NI support including R&D, skills development and marketing assistance.

Their investments demonstrate that business confidence is improving throughout the city area as companies prepare to take advantage of the steadily improving economy.

Enterprise, Trade and Investment Minister Arlene Foster addressed attendees and praised the committment of local businesses.

Stakeholders in the area have an important contribution to make towards business development in the North West and Mayor Brenda Stevenson, Derry City Council representative Stephen Gillespie and Chamber of Commerce President Gerry Kindlon all attended to lend their support.
