EMS Environmental Marketing Solutions in Dungannon has clinched a £1.6 million deal in the United Arab Emirates.

The company designs and manufactures machines for the recycling, waste and construction industries.

Managing director of EMS, Harry McCourt, said: “Due to an ambitious growth strategy, we looked for gaps in the market place. With the assistance of an Invest NI grant for R&D allowing us to broaden our range of products, we were able to focus on creating solutions to address the needs of our customers.

“We are delighted with the developments we have made and will use this technological advancement to target growth in external markets. We’ve had great support from Invest NI towards new market entry and I’m delighted this has resulted in this new customer order in the UAE.”

The company will use a £70,000 Invest Northern Ireland grant for research and development.

Invest NI’s director of business solutions, Jeremy Fitch, added: “EMS Ltd has developed a strategic approach to business growth, investing in innovation and development to develop new products that will generate new business.”
