FRANCESS McDONNELL in Belfast
ANDOR TECHNOLOGY plans to create 166 jobs as part of an £18 million (€21 million) investment that will underpin an ambitious five-year growth strategy to target new markets and acquisitions.
The Northern Ireland company, which develops and manufactures high-performance scientific digital cameras, also aims to more than double its turnover as part of the strategy.
Andor has been offered financial assistance totaling £1.5 million towards the cost of the investment project from Invest Northern Ireland and a further £18,200 from the North’s Department for Employment and Learning.
Andor chief executive Conor Walsh said the company’s success to date had been built on “continuous re-investment in research and development”.
“Our objective has always been to be the market leader in specialist scientific cameras,” Mr Walsh said.
“This investment is the next step in the process and Invest NI’s support will be invaluable in helping us to ramp up production levels and quickly take advantage of market opportunities.”
The company operates from a purpose-built high-tech facility in Belfast’s Springvale Business Park which features optical, electronic and mechanical workshops, as well as clean-room, vacuum and electronic processing facilities.
As part of the investment project, Andor intends to restructure and upgrade the facility and expand into additional buildings.
