NORTHERN Ireland’s economy received another injection in the arm today.
Schrader Electronics Ltd is investing more than £56m to create 241 posts at its Carrickfergus and Antrim sites.
The jobs will be put in place over the next three years.
The company makes tyre pressure gauges for the car industry. It employs about 1,000 people in Northern Ireland. Schrader Electronics is a division of Schrader International.
Invest NI has offered £9.7m support, partly funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
The news comes just a day after auditing firm EY announced it was creating 486 jobs in Belfast from this July.
