Trevor Lunn MLA said: “I strongly welcome this news. It’s great to see these new jobs being created and it is particularly important to have news like this given the difficult economic times Northern Ireland finds itself in.
“The creation of these new jobs will have a very positive impact on the local economy, with more money coming into the area and potentially being spent in shops and businesses here.
“These jobs will be high value and high skill, and that’s what Northern Ireland needs for real economic growth. Lisburn has a highly skilled and hardworking workforce and this excellent news is a real tribute to the area and to the company.”
