Coatings specialist set to create eight new jobs

A company which has carried out projects including the redevelopment of Ravenhill, the Velodrome and Aquatic Centre for the Commonwealth Games plus the Kensington Oval cricket ground in Barbados, is creating eight new jobs.

RW Powder Coatings Ltd in Comber – the sole Northern Ireland supplier of a number of specialist architectural coatings and exporter to Britain, the USA and Canada – has also secured a loan from the £50m Growth Loan Fund to help export sales and purchase new equipment. It has also worked on Apple's HQ in Cork, plus Google HQ and the Aviva Stadium in Dublin.

Meanwhile, Northern Ireland firm McCue Crafted Fit has been listed among the UK industry's best performers at the NAS Design Partnership Awards in London.

McCue took top honours in the leisure category for its refit of Kaspar's Seafood Bar and Grill in luxury London hotel, The Savoy. The project was part of a major two-year refurbishment programme for the 124-year-old venue which regularly counts royalty, world leaders and Hollywood legends on its guest list.
