“CMASS is a dynamic local company and I am pleased to be here today to mark their fifth birthday.

“The investment of more than £500,000 by the company and the support offered by Invest Northern Ireland, of a £62,933 capital grant, demonstrates a commitment to the future by this high growth business,” Mr Bell said.

The investment elevates CMASS to Electronic Contract Manufacturing (ECM) status meaning it can now fully build, assemble, test and repair electronic systems and products and provide Printed Circuit Board Assembly (PCBA) capability alongside its existing Wiring Harness and Software Media Duplication services.

The Managing Director of CMASS, Barry Mulhern is pleased with the developments being made by the company.

We have invested heavily in the latest generation equipment and this was the final piece of the jigsaw to enable to us to offer fully outsourced manufacturing services to our current and new customer base.”
