Family engineering business Warwick Engineering is investing in machinery and ten additional staff with support from Invest Northern Ireland to grow its customer base across Great Britain and the Republic of Ireland.

The Ballymena-based company supplies and installs structural steel, composite and architectural cladding systems as well as bespoke metalwork packages. The investment is already paying dividends with a contract worth c£1.7million recently secured in London.

Commenting on the plans, company Director Cecil Warwick, said: “This investment marks a significant development for the business as we look to build on last year’s sales. Enhancing our workforce, particularly by recruiting a Senior Contracts Manager, a Draughtsman and a Quantity Surveyor, will bring important new skillsets to the business and allow us to pursue exciting new opportunities.

“Invest NI support is helping us rebuild our customer base"

“Invest NI support is helping us rebuild our customer base following challenges in the construction sector and position Warwick Engineering competitively to offer both structural and architectural steel solutions to contractors across Great Britain and the Republic of Ireland.

“The steelwork and metalwork package we are delivering for the Valentines House project in London is a valuable win that will support our growth objectives.”

Invest NI has offered Warwick Engineering £70,000 to support the recruitment of the ten new jobs, six of which are already in place.

Damian McAuley, Invest NI’s Director of Advanced Engineering and Construction, added: “Warwick Engineering is a valued family business in Ballymena and this expansion is positive news for the Mid and East Antrim Council area. The ten new jobs will generate £262,000 annually in additional salaries to the local economy.

“Investing in additional resources and equipment will strengthen Warwick’s capabilities and support the continued growth of the business in its target markets.”
