Hairbrush to aerospace company Denroy has joined a major centre in Belfast to exchange know-how about engineering.

Denroy, maker of the well-known Denman hairbrushes as well as mouldings for the aerospace sector, joins firms including Hutchinson Engineering and Bombardier at the Northern Ireland Advanced Composites Engineering centre (NIACE), close to Bombardier's headquarters.

The firm is a supplier to Bombardier, including its recently CSeries commercial aircraft project.

Since it was set up in 1972, Denroy has become a UK leader in making precision plastics injection mouldings. It recently announced the creation of 32 new jobs in Bangor with a £3m investment.

The company will be expanding its premises and buying new equipment to support its growth in global aerospace.

General manager John Irwin said: "We have been in business for over 40 years, operating in industries and markets all over the world. We have constantly innovated, collaborated and shared our knowledge so our involvement in the NIACE centre is logical for us.

"We look forward to working in tandem with the centre."
