Welcoming the investment, Invest NI Chief Executive, Alastair Hamilton said: “To stimulate economic growth we need to support those businesses with potential for high growth to become the large companies of the future.  To help achieve this we have a specific goal as part of our Business Strategy to double the number of companies participating on our Scaling programme.

“Novosco has been part of our Scaling programme since October 2012.  It has grown rapidly in recent years to become a significant player in Northern Ireland’s thriving IT industry. This growth has been through a combination of investment in leadership, skills and exports. This expansion marks another milestone in Novosco’s development.

“Our support towards these new jobs will ensure Novosco has the additional resources it needs to grow its business. These highly skilled roles, to be recruited over the next three years, will contribute over £4.8million annually in additional salaries to the local economy.

“This is a perfect example of how our support can not only help a local company to grow, but also deliver long-term economic benefit.”
