A Northern Ireland company which makes highway infrastructure has opened a new construction division.
Emtek, which is marking its 15th year in business, said the new division was building on a successful portfolio of recently completed work.
The company was set up by Eddie McKee in 1994 when it employed three people and was operated from the family home in Ballinderry, Co Antrim.
Neil McKee, managing director, said the company had grown and now employs 50 people at its premises in Lurgan, Co Armagh. “We are now a multi-disciplined organisation serving clients in local and national infrastructure projects. The creation of our new construction division enables us to extend our range of services to the commercial, industrial and residential sectors.
“The reason our business has been successful over the last 15 years has been a commitment to delivering high quality service and innovative products. We are passionate about what we do and the need to keep developing our business to best meet the needs of our growing customer base.
“As a result we have won many major highway infrastructure contracts, large urban regeneration schemes and car park/airport perimeter protection projects not just in Northern Ireland but also in Limerick, Cork, Carlow, Dublin, Donegal, Meath and Galway.
“We have also been successful in developing business in Great Britain.”
