A Lisburn firm is creating more than 60 new technology jobs.

Seven Technologies was established in 2005 and has grown rapidly since then, doubling sales of its data acquisition and internet protocol products in the last two years.

Recently the company has seen further significant growth driven by export success and already employs just over 50 people.

Invest Northern Ireland has offered support of £854,000 for the new jobs, which will be in the areas of specialist engineering, manufacturing and administrative support.

Gavin Williamson, chief executive Seven Technologies, said that the expansion will enable the firm to tender for more and bigger contracts, to increase its portfolio of products and services and to widen its customer base.

"We aim to significantly increase our turnover over the next two years," he said.

"That growth will be accelerated by Invest NI's support, which is allowing us to quickly recruit the new staff we need."

Invest NI's chief executive Alastair Hamilton added: "Seven Technologies has demonstrated impressive sales growth to date and is primed for further growth.

"It has a strong management team, which is crucial to business success, and a keen understanding of its niche market.

"The company has received a range of support from Invest NI over the last few years to help it refine and market its products."
