A Scottish engineering company has set up an engineering site in Ballymena creating 22 jobs over five years.
AGR Automation Ltd, whose HQ is in Arbroath, Scotland, designs and manufactures high performance bespoke automation solutions for high volume parts assembly, mainly in the medical, personal care and industrial electro-
mechanical device markets.
Invest Northern Ireland has offered £49,971 of support through its Skills Growth Programme and an employment grant of £220,000 for the new jobs, which will initially be mostly mechanical and electrical technician posts.
“Having considered a number of locations, we decided that Ballymena offered the best solution in terms of quality, cost and the support available,” AGR Automation’s Managing Director Derek Gaston said.
