A DERRY manufacturer is to create 12 jobs over the next two years in a bid to secure new business across the UK and Ireland.

Carella Laminate Systems is expanding its workforce to help secure new orders in the interior fit-out markets and is investing in all all areas of the business including sales, production, management and service.

The new roles will be recruited over the next two years and once in place will contribute £407,000 in additional salaries to the local economy.

The company has also expanded its facilities, recently developing new premises in Campsie Industrial Estate.

Managing director Seamus Heron said the new staff will help generate more business for the company.

“We have seen a recent uplift in projects secured across Great Britain and the Republic of Ireland and want to continue to grow our market share, driving sales of our worktops and contract interior fit-out solutions."

The investment is being supported by Invest NI and director of advanced manufacturing and engineering Bill Montgomery added:

“Carella has an ambitious strategy to grow sales in Great Britain by 70 per cent over the next three years and is focused on positioning itself to achieve this objective."

"The £90,000 offered towards the 12 new jobs will ensure Carella has the resources its needs to avail of its identified business opportunities," he said.
