TG Eakin Limited is currently undertaking two development projects worth over £1.5million, supported by Invest NI.
The first will create a new stoma care product which aims to enhance the comfort of patients and the second will dramatically improve the company’s process capability.
Northern Ireland’s Enterprise Minister Arlene Foster visited the company’s premises today, to view the progress and enhancements made to date. The Minister commented: “TG Eakin has grown from a small local company to become a global supplier in the industry. This major investment by a family run company highlights its longstanding commitment to developing new highly advanced products for global markets.” “With over 80% of sales to export markets, the development of this latest medical device will support further growth, demonstrating the value of investing in innovation and R&D in driving business success.”
Jeremy Eakin, Managing Director of TG Eakin Limited, said: “The support and advice received from Invest NI to date has been of significant assistance as we identify and implement technological advances to manufacture this new high quality product. Using our knowledge base in the industry, we are confident this innovation has the potential to increase our global sales.”
