Seven new jobs are being created at a manufacturing firm in Co Londonderry.

Crossland Tankers manufactures, refurbishes and repairs road tankers for the milk, food, chemical, bitumen and waste sectors at premises in Swatragh and Burnley.

The seven new production jobs based in Swatragh include five new welder fabricators, a stores person and a materials handler.

The company has expanded its production and storage facilities in recent years and also invested in new product development to boost its competitive position across the UK and Europe.

Sean McKeown, managing director of Crossland Tankers, said that the expansions have helped boost productivity.

"Enhancing our workforce has enabled us to promptly deliver customer orders and secure new sales," he said.

"Combined with the investments to our premises and in research and development, this expansion positions us competitively to grow our business across Europe."

Invest Northern Ireland offered over £30,000 towards the creation of the new jobs.

Kevin McCann from Invest NI said that the company's commitment to research and development has already resulted in a strong export performance.

"Investing in its workforce will ensure this ambitious business has the resources required to take advantage of further growth opportunities." he said.
