Northern Irish packaging firm to capitalise on growth with £2 million investment

Food packaging manufacturer Boran-Mopack has created 10 new jobs with their £2.4 million investment as part of an export growth drive in Strabane, Co. Tyrone.

Boosted by Invest NI funding of £250,000, the company aims to double exports over the next couple of years after significant investment in machinery and equipment.

Boran-Mopack is part of the Boran group of companies based in Naas, Co. Kildare. The company makes packaging for clients such as major Irish crisps manufacturer Tayto, and is not hoping to branch out their offering into packaging for frozen food, snacks and baked goods.

Managing Director Mairtin Boran says: “This investment signals our commitment to drive the long-term growth of the business and Invest NI’s support has been vital in ensuring we can implement our expansion plans.

“Enhancing our production capabilities to enable us to produce a higher definition of print quality will help us gain an advantage in a competitive industry. With opportunities identified in frozen foods, snacks and baked products, we are working hard to maximise our sales potential and achieve our export ambitions.”

John Hood, director of food at Invest NI, comments: “This important investment has enhanced Boran-Mopack’s production capabilities and positioned the business to reduce its lead times and secure sales in new markets and sectors. Invest NI’s support is underpinning the growth of this business. The 10 new production jobs created in Strabane as a result of the investment is welcome news for the town, and a positive boost for the food and drink manufacturing industry.”
