Sixty new jobs are to be created at a Co Antrim textile company.
All-Tex Recyclers in Cloughmills, a major textile recycling and export business, currently employs 188 staff at its 57,000 sq ft headquarters in the village.
The firm has an annual turnover of around £10m and is now investing heavily in its production systems, allowing for the creation of 60 new textile grader positions.
Paula McAuley, business development manager at All-Tex, said it was an exciting time for the company.
"We are in a period of strategic growth and believe that through investment in our production systems we can continue to develop at a sustainable pace," she said.
"We work with many well-known charities, fundraising groups and councils throughout Ireland and we look forward to becoming the market leader in the grading of used clothing and paired shoes.
"As a locally based firm in Cloughmills, we have many global export partners and we hope that this investment in our infrastructure will improve our competitiveness and strengthen our links with suppliers, as we believe in leading, not following."
