Derry company Cornerstone Automation Systems (CASI) UK Ltd is investing over £1 million to expand its operations from its new premises located at Bay Road Business Park.
The company, which is less than two years old, is being supported by Invest Northern Ireland to employ 12 additional staff and undertake a substantial marketing programme.
CASI manufactures and integrates a full line of material handling systems for customers across a wide range of industries including pharmaceutical distribution, consumer goods and manufacturing. These include shipping systems, in-motion scales, sortation, box opening, order picking, receiving, as well as software and controls.
Speaking on a visit to the company’s premises, Invest NI’s Chief Executive Alastair Hamilton said: “This ambitious company has identified opportunities in the automation, sortation and material handling systems market and since setting up in 2010 has enjoyed fast revenue growth.
“This investment will enable CASI to employ the skilled staff it needs to move to its next stage of growth and to undertake marketing to help it achieve a greater geographical reach beyond Northern Ireland, into the rest of the UK and internationally.”
