Northern Ireland-based Maine Surface Finishing plans to create 155 jobs in a £9.5 million expansion.
The company provides powder coating and wet paint spraying — plus in-house fabrication services — at its four factories in Coleraine, Dunloy, Garvagh and Magherafelt.
It is looking to recruit skilled engineers, fabricators, welders and administrative staff for its facility in Coleraine.
Making the announcement, Economy Minister Diane Dodds said: “This significant investment by Maine Surface Finishing marks an exciting development in the company’s 20-year history and is positive news for Northern Ireland’s manufacturing industry.
“It is testament to Maine Surface Finishing’s commitment to the Coleraine area, and it will strengthen the company’s position as an important player in Northern Ireland’s materials handling sector, providing key supply chain services to some of our leading exporters.”
Adrian Dixon, director of Maine Surface Finishing (www.mainesurfacefinishing.com
), said: “We are delighted to be expanding our operations in Coleraine.
“Our investment will include purchasing ‘state of the art’ equipment, the development of two new units in Wattstown Business Park and the introduction of a new ICT system, so we can effectively manage projected growth.
“This investment will enable us to improve our efficiency, ramp up production and pursue identified opportunities in Great Britain and the Republic of Ireland.”
