CO Armagh-based Resonate Testing is investing £650,000 in its business, initially creating four jobs and expanding its offering of high-quality testing and qualification services to its global audience.

The investment, which comes as it celebrates its fifth anniversary, is being supported by Invest NI to the tune of £94,500.

It will see the completion of a number of upgrades to the company's facility in Newry, a Centre of Excellence for Space and the only commercial testing laboratory for aircraft interiors and their components in Ireland.

Resonate specialises in high quality fire and flammability, vibration and shock, and environmental and climatic testing and certification services, and its future growth strategy includes further investment in machinery, working towards industry standards and accreditations, as well as continued staff development and an expansion of the company's current portfolio of services.

Managing director Tom Mallon said: “This will further enhance our offering to our local and global customer base.

“Since starting the expansion of the Nacelle Group of companies with the creation of Resonate in 2016, we have significant growth, with customers in Europe, USA, Brazil, Canada, Russia and Japan, as well as across the Island of Ireland and Great Britain.

“This increase in demand has allowed us to create four more jobs and take on more special projects, especially in the space sector where we have assisted in testing processes with UK and Ireland Space Engineering companies on products that are being sent to outer space.”

Grainne McVeigh, Invest NI's director of advanced manufacturing and engineering said: “Resonate Testing is a forward thinking company which has put innovation at the heart of its business to foster long-term growth.

“Our offer of support to purchase new equipment will assist it to keep up with demand for its services and help to drive further international success.”
