Printing firm W&G Baird unveils £4m equipment upgrade
One of Ireland's oldest printers has laid claim to being the island's most technologically advanced after unveiling a £4 million upgrade.
Established in 1862, W&G Baird employs 95 staff at its main site in Antrim, with offices in Dublin and Nottingham.
On Friday it showed off a range of new equipment which, it claims, will put it at the cutting edge of the industry.
Stormont Economy Minister Jonathan Bell attended the launch event.
"W&G Baird has a long and distinguished history within the printing industry and this investment to upgrade the company's equipment cements its commitment to future growth," he said.
Patrick Moffett, managing director of W&G Baird, added: "Whilst we already operate the largest print room in Ireland, the installation of this new press and binder will enhance our already considerable capacity and maintain our position as an innovator in the industry."
