Invest Northern Ireland has helped to start up a new support company for the manufacturing industry called Aztech Engineering Solutions Ltd which is expected to create seven new jobs over the next two years.
Based in the Greenshoots incubation centre, Newry the company will have a strong export focus providing innovative engineering solutions for manufacturing companies across Northern Ireland, Great Britain and the Republic of Ireland.
Aztech Engineering Solutions Ltd will work closely with its clients to help them overcome manufacturing problems by providing tailor made solutions such as, plant modification and refurbishment or on-site project management support.
Welcoming the creation of this new company Mark Bleakney, regional manager of Invest NI’s Southern Local Office said:
“Aztech Engineering Solutions Ltd has a wealth of experience and support to offer the manufacturing industry. I am confident that the innovative solutions they provide will have a dramatic impact upon both their client’s competitiveness and profitability.”
The firm will also concentrate on its own specialist product development projects for use by the manufacturing industry. Currently the company has developed an automated leak testing machine for the sealed packaging used in the food and pharmaceutical sector and an automatic multiple ingredients dispenser for use specifically by food companies.
With a number of other products in development it is anticipated that this focus on R&D will create a secondary revenue stream for the company. Commenting on the launch of his new company managing director John Rooney said:
“Companies operating within the manufacturing industry must continuously evolve if they are to stay successful and only through an increased emphasis on innovative R&D will they be able to grow and develop. We can help businesses to do this and with our support and advice make them more competitive, efficient and profitable.”
