Excite-ing times for Lisburn firm

First Minister Peter Robinson and Junior Minister Jeffrey Donaldson have helped launch the Excite Group’s new premises in Lisburn, officially welcoming the £2.4m investment to the local area.

The conference display contractor and promotional merchandise provider, founded in 1999, has recently relocated from Belfast to Lisburn to new purpose-built premises, encompassing a large showroom, offices and manufacturing workshop measuring 23,500 sq ft on a one acre site.

Speaking at the launch, Mr Robinson said: “I am delighted to be here to welcome an outstanding company to Lisburn and to commend its local and international business achievements. The Excite Group exemplifies the entrepreneurial spirit that Northern Ireland needs as we move our economy forward.”

Mr Donaldson also welcomed the expansion of a local company.

“The Excite Group is an up and coming business which has chosen to relocate to Lisburn,” he said.

“They have invested a considerable amount in the local economy and it is particularly important to see more jobs coming into the area.”

Managing director Colin Cummings said continued growth was behind the company’s decision to relocate to the new Lisburn site.

“The city had great appeal for a business at our stage of growth. It is a perfect location for cross-border logistics and offers a first class business support network,” he added.

Excite’s Exhibition and Display division works for many of Northern Ireland’s leading blue chip companies, supplying custom designed exhibition stands, conference backdrops and portable display equipment.

Its sister company, Excite Promotional Merchandise, provides a range of promotional business gifts and individually branded corporate items to firms and organisations, ranging from small sole traders and charities to local and central government and large national companies in the commercial and public sector.
