CMASS celebrates fifth birthday with significant investment
30 July 2015
Co Antrim based manufacturing service company CMASS has announced that it has received an investment of more than £500,000 (about €710,000) and that it would lead to the creation of five jobs.
The investment elevates CMASS to Electronic Contract Manufacturing (ECM) status meaning it can now fully build, assemble, test and repair electronic systems and products and provide Printed Circuit Board Assembly (PCBA) capability alongside its existing Wiring Harness and Software Media Duplication services.
Northern Ireland Enterprise, Trade and Investment Minister Jonathan Bell said: “In its early days, CMASS provided labour only production services, however through this latest investment in a state-of-the-art Printed Circuit Board Assembly capability, CMASS has developed into one of Northern Ireland’s leading manufacturing services companies.
“I know in recent years CMASS has performed strongly in export markets with a large proportion of sales being generated outside of Northern Ireland. It is envisaged this investment will help boost the company’s growth and further enhance their competitive position in the global market place.”
Barry Mulhern, managing director, CMASS, said: “We have performed strongly in recent years with 90 per cent of our sales being generated outside of Northern Ireland. We have invested heavily in the latest generation equipment and this was the final piece of the jigsaw to enable to us to offer fully outsourced manufacturing services to our current and new customer base.
“This project elevates us to ECM status and in turn gives us the opportunity to increase our sales revenues outside of Northern Ireland and grow our exports on a global scale.”http://www.engineersjournal.ie/2015/07/30/cmass-celebrates-fifth-birthday-significant-investment/http://www.engineersjournal.ie/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/acmass1.jpghttp://www.engineersjournal.ie/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/acmass1-300x300.jpgNewsinvestment,jobs,manufacturing,Northern Ireland
