20 April 2021

Mayor of Derry City and Strabane District Council, Cllr Brian Tierney, has welcomed news today that manufacturing firm Houston Precision Engineering (HPE) will be the newest addition to Strabane Business Park, creating 41 engineering jobs in the process.

The Donegal firm provides high quality engineering services to customers regionally, nationally and internationally and focuses primarily on metal fabrication and precision machining services. 

Mayor Tierney said: "At a time when we are looking forward in the COVID-19 recovery process, this is really fantastic and positive news for Strabane and for our region. It is a substantial investment which once again shows we have the skills, talent and opportunity within our Council area to cement this as a place to work and to invest in.

"This announcement comes with the promise of 41 jobs which is very welcome news, and the move will add to the already significant manufacturing and engineering sector that we have across Derry and Strabane.

"I want to welcome HPE to our region and wish them the best of luck in their expansion and would also like to thank Invest Northern Ireland for the vital role that they have played in attracting business to this area, and for the support they have provided."
