More jobs as Belfast firm Niavac turnover increases

By John Mulgrew

A Belfast audio-visual firm has said it is expanding further after witnessing turnover increase by a fifth in the last two years.

Niavac has said it had experienced strong results in 2015 so far, with turnover up.

It's also recently added three new staff members to its workforce, bringing the total number to 25.

According to managing director, James Conlon, the business has survived and weathered the storm of recession, and has grown significantly.

"Throughout 2015, major installation contracts, coupled with increased event and conference activities have contributed to a strong year of trading" he said.

"Over time, AV (audio-visual) systems have become essential to the operation of government and companies of all shapes and sizes and, in our experience, the requirement for innovative AV solutions is growing in almost every business sector here."

"Our investment in the latest innovative AV technology is really paying off as customers look to professional solutions as part of their own interactive and digital strategies.

"Like many businesses, we were faced with serious challenges during the difficult financial climate but we are also one of the few companies that continued recruiting against the trend of redundancies. Having a highly experienced team has really made a difference as the economy rebounds and the market returns to growth."

The company has now been running for more than 50 years, and counts a number of big name businesses and public sector organisations among its customers.

That list includes Progressive Insurance, the Ulster Hospital, Graham Construction and Titanic Belfast.

The company says it is well positioned to grow further in 2016.
