A NORTHERN Ireland office furniture firm has landed its first export deal in Africa.
The Alpha Group, based in Belfast, has secured a government contract to fit-out offices in Abuja - Nigeria's capital.
The company's design business, 1080, secured the deal in partnership with UK firm Senator.
Paul Black, chief executive of the Alpha Group, said: "Securing the contract in Nigeria has been an exciting process for the company as it bolsters our international credentials.
"Having experience beyond our own borders shows potential clients that we have the logistical expertise to deliver a project anywhere in the world.
"This is especially attractive to global organisations as they prefer to have one consistent design across cities."
The company would not reveal the value of the new contract.
