Interiors firm have eyes set on Europe with new product

By Margaret Canning

A Co Tyrone decor company has invested over £90,000 in a product targeted at new customers across Europe.

Surfaceform in Cookstown has created a modular plaster panel which can be linked together to form a decorative wall design.

The company creates polished plaster finishes for clients across the UK including interior designers and developers.

Its products are used in properties such as boutique hotels and offices.

Invest NI offered £37,370 towards the company's £92,700 investment to help with research and development of the new product and market development.

Aaron McKeown, managing director of Surfaceform, said: "Invest NI's support has enabled us to enhance our capabilities and expand the business into a niche area with significant export potential. Our new modular plaster product range forms an important part of our growth strategy and we are delighted with the response from customers to date."

Invest NI director Carol Keery said: "Surfaceform is a cutting-edge, innovative business and its new product range is a valuable addition to the company's current offering."
