AW Control Systems Ltd in Armagh is creating 16 new jobs and building an additional production facility to support its growth plans. The company specialises in the design, manufacture, installation and commissioning of Automated Control Systems. It is investing £520,000 in a new building and equipment, more than doubling its production space. This, along with the recruitment of 16 new staff, will help the company increase production levels to target new markets and meet the growing demands of its customers.

Speaking about the investment, Andrew Willis (pictured left), Managing Director, AW Control Systems Ltd said: “Demand for our products is increasing. This investment ensures we are adequately resourced with additional space, manpower and equipment to meet our customer’s needs and further expand our customer base. At Invest NI’s Leader Programme last year we had the benefit of working with experienced business mentors to develop a strategic growth plan for our business, which we are now putting into action.

“We currently have contracts in NI, ROI, GB, USA, Australia and Asia and are aiming to build on the existing strength of the business to further expand our customer base here. We are also hoping to capitalise on growth opportunities in new markets. Invest NI’s support will enable us to recruit the additional staff needed to achieve this. We look forward to welcoming our new staff who will be instrumental in helping us to implement our growth plan objectives.”

Invest Northern Ireland has offered AW Control Systems Ltd £128,000 towards the new jobs. The new roles include electrical design engineers, panel builders, electricians and office support staff and recruitment is currently underway.

Bill Montgomery (pictured right), Invest NI’s Director of Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering added: “This expansion is an exciting milestone for AW Control Systems Ltd, enabling the business to fulfil its growth potential. It is encouraging to see the company reinvest in the Armagh area and create valuable employment opportunities. The 16 jobs, when in place will generate over £400,000 in additional annual salaries for the local economy.”
