An east Belfast printing company said it hopes to create eight new jobs with a £1.3m investment.

GPS Colour Graphics has bought a new binder and automated sewing machine to allow it to offer both a printing and binding service, a service it said is unique across the island.

The 100-year-old firm already employs 67 people and has invested £5.5m over five years.

Owner Derek Bell said: "We needed binding facilities that complemented our other production capability and we reached a stage where there was no option other than to bring binding in house.

"We are a 24/7 printing business so it is imperative that we have the flexibility to be able to bind seven days a week."
