Brian Boyce, joint managing director, said: “This is an exciting time for us at Boyce Precision Engineering, as we begin the next stage of our journey.

“This major investment will help us to meet our strategic growth plans and boost our sales in external markets.

“Invest NI’s support towards expanding our premises and acquiring specialist machinery has been key to increasing our production capability and capacity, taking the business to a whole new level.”

Alastair Hamilton, Invest NI CEO, said: “This major investment by Boyce Precision Engineering is a positive endorsement of the strength of Northern Ireland’s manufacturing capabilities.

"This new facility and the creation of 27 new skilled jobs is encouraging news for the Portadown area.

"Our support towards this project will ensure that the company has the additional resources it needs to expand and capitalise on its growing reputation as a high-quality manufacturer and supplier of machined components.”
