A Derry engineering firm is to create 40 jobs.

Maydown Precision Engineering (MPE) will create the jobs after Manchester-based A2E Venture Catalysts bought a majority stake in the company.

MPE supplies parts to major aircraft manufacturers Bombardier, Airbus and Boeing.

It currently employs 135 staff in Derry and has started recruiting for a further 40 engineering jobs.

Sinn Féin MLA Raymond McCartney says it is “a great boost for the local economy”.

“The confidence of this investment will also send a positive message that the North West is competitive and a good place to invest,” he added.
