As Nitronica’s impressive growth continues, the Directors are pleased to announce that they are investing in an additional manufacturing assembly line and new assembly technologies.
Nitronica have already invested heavily in new management positions during 2018 to support the next phases of growth including the appointment of an additional Production Manager and a Key Account Manager and this latest announcement adds to the positive mood around the Ballynahinch electronics manufacturing operation.
Currently employing 130 people, it is likely that that there will be further jobs created in the months ahead. The order book and rolling 12 months forecast is extremely healthy and further growth is forecast for 2018 following over 30% growth in 2017.
“In 2016 the directors set a very ambitious 5 year growth plan for Nitronica and we’re delighted that 18 months in to that plan we are ahead of target. This major investment is testament to our belief in our business and our people and will equip the company with the resources it needs to take it to the next level of its development. We are also extremely proud of our 65 year history of manufacturing in Ballynahinch and believe that through this investment we will continue to make a positive contribution to the local community into the future. We would also like to thank Invest NI and Bank of Ireland, whose support in delivering this project has been invaluable.”
