The Mayor of Mid and East Antrim has congratulated a Larne business on the opening of new, expanded premises and plans to create additional employment in the area.
Stealth Translations Ltd is celebrating 15 years in business as a provider of high-quality technical translation services.
The company, which also has sales offices in Italy, Germany and the USA, has worked closely with Council over the last six years, as a participant on a number of business support programmes including Amplify’s Business Escalator, Sales Growth and Digital Boost initiatives.
Mayor, Cllr Maureen Morrow, spoke at the opening of the firm’s new premises this week, when the company also launched a new export support service, ‘BridgetoExport’.
She praised the local company and its Managing Director, Stephen Weir, for their continued commitment to the borough’s economy.
“Council’s suite of business support and development programmes, Amplify, provides tailored support to our SME’s and is pivotal to the growth of our local economy,” the Mayor continued.
“I would encourage all our local businesses to avail of the comprehensive support open to them and I am delighted to see the positive impact the Amplify programmes are already having through the continued success of Stealth Translations Ltd.
“I have watched the progress of Stealth Translations as a start-up in LEDCOM back in 2005, progressing to be a recipient at Larne Business Awards in 2012 and becoming the successful company from the Larne Borough in the Invest NI Go Global competition in 2014.
“It is with great delight that I acknowledge their 15 years in business, as well as their continued expansion and investment into our local economy and particularly the Larne area.
“I was very excited to hear about the plans that Stephen and his team have to create new jobs and develop new services for local and export markets.
“Stealth Translations has worked closely with Council over the last six years, and I am delighted at the impact that continual engagement with ourselves and other stakeholders such as Invest Northern Ireland and InterTradeIreland has had on the business.
