Enterprise Minister Arlene Foster has announced that C&C Group is investing £1.2million in a Commercial Business Support Centre in Belfast.

The new centre, which is being assisted by Invest Northern Ireland, will be based in the group’s existing offices in the Boucher area of South Belfast and will provide 25 new jobs over the next two years.

Announcing the investment during a visit to the group’s offices, Arlene Foster said: “The C&C Group must be applauded for creating much needed jobs and for expanding their Belfast operation. It is testament to the company, which has been present in Belfast for over 100 years that it continues to develop and grow.

“Today’s announcement is a substantial endorsement of Northern Ireland as a location for expert services and it will generate around £1.3million in salaries and wages over the next two years. The new centre will provide employment opportunities in an economically disadvantaged area and across a broad range of professional support services.”

Invest NI has offered the company almost £250,000 towards its investment including training support, part funded by the European Regional Development Fund.

Tom McCusker, Managing Director of C&C Group Ireland and Tennent’s NI, said: “We are delighted that this important strategic investment is being made in Northern Ireland. Belfast was among a number of potential locations in Britain and the Republic of Ireland that were evaluated by the group.

“Belfast emerged as the most suitable and best cost location because of the availability of skilled people here, a record of low staff turnover rates, a robust infrastructure particularly in terms of telecommunications, and the support package from Invest NI especially for employee training, the latter being an important focus for the group.”
