West Belfast microbiology and asbestos-testing firm Chemtest is creating 15 new jobs.

The firm, which was founded last year, is taking on new analysts and administrations with the support of Invest NI. The jobs will pay an average of £18,000.

It is aiming to expand its client base in Great Britain and the Republic and has taken on a new business development manager.

Laboratory manager Ashleigh Greeves said: "We recognise the potential to grow our business outside of Northern Ireland and are concentrating on generating awareness of our brand at trade fairs and exhibitions to improve Chemtest Ireland's competitive position and help leverage new business."

Invest NI offered the firm over £115,000 to support its growth efforts including an employment grant of £90,000 towards the new jobs. Damian McAuley, Invest NI's director of advanced engineering and construction, said: "Chemtest is pursuing an aggressive growth strategy.

"Invest NI support has enabled the company to put the resources and marketing collateral in place to exploit new business opportunities."
