£1.7 million investment by Seven Technologies

Mar 11, 2008

Invest Northern Ireland is supporting a £1.7 million investment by Lisburn-based company Seven Technologies that will help the company develop and promote new products and services for export markets.

Seven Technologies specialises in the provision of technical surveillance equipment and training to help organisations combat anti-social activities such as prohibited dumping and illegal immigration, as well as ensuring safety on transport routes such as railways.

The United States National Park Service is using systems provided by Seven Technologies in a joint trial with animal conservation specialists, combining environmental concerns with illegal immigration prevention.

The company aims to generate sales of £2.5 million over the next three years by developing new state of the art surveillance equipment, strengthening its service portfolio and implementing an extensive export marketing campaign. Activities will include attendance at trade fairs and sales conferences in foreign markets.

Seven Technologies also plans to recruit up to 13 highly skilled people who will focus on the key areas of product research and marketing.

Ian Murphy, Invest NI’s Managing Director of Clients and Entrepreneurship, said: “Invest NI is committed to supporting companies that are seeking to increase their global market share by developing new products and services.

“The skills and experience of the company’s employees have been pivotal to its growth so far. Combined with its ongoing collaboration with the higher education sector, Seven Technologies will be in an extremely strong competitive position as it focuses on the development of innovative solutions for its international client base.”

Dave Anderson, Joint Managing Director of Seven Technologies, said: “This investment will enable us to target new markets, and to enhance relationships with our existing customers. By developing our product and service offering to customers we can add value to our existing business and increase our competitiveness in export markets.

“Our existing customers include a range of organisations such as UK Fire and Rescue Services, Irish Rail and local councils across the UK,” added Mr Anderson.
