SMEs in Fermanagh and Omagh are investing over £1.5million to grow their market share in Great Britain. Struct Steel Engineering, Curran Gas Limited and Greentown Traffic Management from Fermanagh and Omagh-based companies New Generation Agri and Oran Oak Engineering, have been working with Invest Northern Ireland to help grow their business.

31 new roles are being recruited across the five businesses which operate in the manufacturing, engineering and service industries.

Invest NI’s Western Office Manager, Ethna McNamee, commented: “This is just a few of the businesses in Fermanagh and Omagh who we are working with to help identify opportunities for growth and development. Invest NI support, totalling £165,829, is enabling these companies to create new jobs and gain additional resources and expertise to sell to new markets.

“The 31 new jobs, over half of which are already in place, will generate over £600,000 annually in additional salaries into the local economy and create valuable employment opportunities in the Fermanagh and Omagh District Council area.

“Working together with economic development partners, we want to make Northern Ireland the best region in which to start, and grow, a business. We have given a commitment in our business strategy to work even more closely with partners both locally and internationally to support economic development and contribute to the delivery of community planning.”
