‘It’s fantastic for a company in Northern Ireland to manufacture a globally-recognised machine’
Established in 2018 as Process Automation & Calibrations Ltd, PAC Group, an electrical and mechanical engineering company, rebranded in 2019.
This enabled the business to better communicate its eight key divisions, which are electrical, spray booths and ovens, automation, calibration, gas detection, switchgear and control, composites, and support services.
The business works for clients in the manufacturing, aerospace, engineering, construction, food and beverage, and pharmaceutical industries.
With over 250 customers, the company can name Bombardier (now Spirit AeroSystems), McLaren Automotive, and NI Water as just some of its clients.
PAC has 40 employees, with plans to hire at least another 10 in the next year.
Speaking about the award win, Darren Leslie, business development director at PAC Group, said: “We’ve been busy over the past few years and have created a large composite machine that alone has 42 different patents. It is a machine that helps form an aircraft’s wing and it’s fantastic for a company in Northern Ireland to manufacture a machine recognised globally by the likes of BA Systems and Boeing.
“It presents many opportunities for us.
“We are delighted to win this award. It is a credit to the team and recognises our work and what we add to the economy.”
PAC has delivered four of its new machines to Spirit AeroSystems.
