An Antrim-based online retailer which started out by trading with Australia has emerged as one of Ireland's fastest-growing tech firms.

At number four, Ozaroo Retail is the highest-placed of 11 Northern Ireland firms in the Deloitte Fast 50.

The awards, which have been running for 17 years, are a celebration of fast-growing tech firms on the island of Ireland.

Ozaroo has been in business for seven years and is run by brothers Chris and Conor Martin.

It ships more than 1,000 parcels a day, specialising in beauty, toys, baby accessories and home and tech products.

IT firm P2V Systems, which is based in Lisburn, was ranked at number 12.

Digital business Engage was this year's Rising Star award winner, a category recognising younger companies with the fastest growth in turnover over the past three years.

Engage delivers content management, e-commerce and digital marketing, with offices in Belfast, Dublin and London. Deloitte partner Peter Allen said: "The companies were exceptional and innovative. This ambition is hugely encouraging to see and will be increasingly important in a post-Brexit marketplace."
