An Austrian-owned packaging company is creating 10 new jobs following a £2.2m investment in new equipment at its Dungannon plant.

Greiner Packaging is hoping to expand demand for its products by installing In-Mould Labelling (IML) technology to take advantage of the expected growth of the Northern Ireland agri-food industry.

As a result, it expects to expand market share here further in the coming years after recording growth of 17% last year and topping the performance of the worldwide company's sites.

"The IML equipment has already enabled us to expand our packaging portfolio and to secure significant new business from international customers," Jarek Zasadzinski, CEO of Greiner Packaging UK, said.

"While we have a strong customer base particularly in rigid packaging for the dairy industry, the new moulding hall is enabling us to develop expertise and products for a much wider marketplace including high profile clients especially in the global confectionery industry."

"This strengthens the position of the operation here in Dungannon substantially and provides scope for further and faster growth in both short and long terms."

Invest NI offered £200,000 toward the project.

"The scale of the investment by the Greiner Group is evidence of the quality and calibre of the Northern Ireland operation and speaks volumes on its ability to deliver in challenging economic times," said Enterprise Minister Arlene Foster.

"The company is also an important player within the local food industry especially the dairy sector and is positioned to make an even greater contribution as the industry continues to grow."
