The company specialises in supplying printed carton packaging for manufacturers to various sectors including food and beauty.

The new investment is part of the company’s plans to expand into new markets.

Specifically designed to meet the requirements of the pharmaceutical sector, the company’s Komori machine leverages high-speed cameras to prevent errors on print runs.

It also enables jobs to be remotely authorised prior to printing.

Priory Press Packaging managing director Mark McConville said: “While there has been a continual demand for our packaging in the food retail sector, we have recognised a gap in the pharmaceutical market for our services since the pandemic hit.

“By investing in specialist machinery, and employees with the skills to operate this effectively, we will be able to break into this new sector and grow our business in international markets, beginning with ROI.

“Invest NI’s long term support has been invaluable and has been key in bringing our business to the level it is today. It is also helping us secure our ISO accreditation for the Pharmaceutical Packaging Standard, which is important for us to be credible within the sector and will open doors with potential clients.”
