Economy Minister Nigel Dodds today joined management and staff at Beveridge Engineering in Coleraine, to celebrate the company’s 10th anniversary.

“It has become an excellent role model of an entrepreneurial business that is succeeding through ongoing investment in technology and export marketing. The company has invested in training programmes that ensure its employees, mostly locally recruited, have the essential skills and capability for continued competitiveness in its target markets.
“This sharp focus on excellence has enabled the company to build a portfolio of high profile clients and to gain vast experience in projects as diverse as major shopping centres and extensive warehouse complexes.”
The minister concluded: “It is with great pleasure that I congratulate the team at Beveridge Engineering on their tremendous achievements. I am sure that other smaller companies in Coleraine and the wider North West will draw confidence and encouragement from Beveridge Engineering’s track record.”
