Larne enterprise hits milestone

A Larne enterprise development company has celebrated 25 years in business.

LEDCOM marked their anniversary last week in a ceremony attended by finance minister Sammy Wilson.

The agency was set up in 1985 by Larne Borough Council and the Local Enterprise Development Unit to motivate the creation of enterprise.

Mr Wilson congratulated the organisation on its success.

He said: “LEDCOM has played its part in the economic regeneration of Larne and the surrounding area, promoting innovation and entrepreneurship.

“We know that the structure of the local economy is fundamentally unbalanced with too great a dependence on the public sector. Small and medium sized enterprises are the foundation of the Northern Ireland economy.”
