    Bombardier is the world’s leading manufacturer of both planes and trains.

    In 1989, the world’s first aircraft manufacturer, Short Brothers plc (Shorts), was acquired by Bombardier from the UK Government. Since then, with Bombardier investment of almost £2.5 billion, they have become an integral part of the world's third largest civil aircraft manufacturer.

    From design through manufacture to after-market support, Bombardier Aerospace, Belfast specialises in major aircraft structures including fuselages, wings, engine nacelle systems, and flight control surfaces in metal and advanced composites. With first-class capabilities and a workforce of around 6,000, the Belfast operation plays a pivotal role in all Bombardier's families of commercial and business aircraft. In addition to its headquarters in Belfast, the company has several other facilities located a short distance from the city. Customer services and composites production, including engine nacelles, are based at Newtownabbey and further composites production takes place in Dunmurry.  Sheet-metal component production is based at Newtownards.

    Renowned for their high standard products, the company has received 16 Queen’s Awards for Industry, 11 National Training Awards, and 24 Regional Training Awards. In addition to Bombardier programmes, customers include Airbus, General Electric, International Aero Engines, Irkut Corporation, Pratt & Whitney, and Rolls-Royce.

    A percentage of pre-tax profits is allocated to the Bombardier Aerospace (NI) Foundation  each year to help fund Northern Ireland-based initiatives, mainly in the areas of environment, education and entrepreneurship. The foundation also supports employees who take part in volunteering projects in their local communities

    Bombardier Aerospace is the largest manufacturing company in Northern Ireland and produces around 10 per cent of Northern Ireland's total manufacturing exports.  Bombardier Aerospace’s activities in the UK and Ireland benefit over 800 suppliers and, in 2013, awarded them work worth around £284 million. The company leads the ADS Group’s SC21 (21st Century Supply Chains) programme in Northern Ireland, which addresses supply chain improvement and aims to increase the competitiveness of the UK aerospace and defence sector.  

    Bombardier Aerospace has a strategic presence in the UK and are committed to supporting the joint government and industry Aerospace Growth Partnership (AGP), which has led to the development of an Aerospace Industrial Strategy, launched in March 2013. The strategy aims to promote long-term growth, boost the number of skilled jobs, and enable the UK to foster innovative technologies to ensure it remains at the forefront of the global aerospace industry. 

    A key element of this strategy will be the UK Aerospace Technology Institute (ATI), which represents a joint industry and Government investment of £2 billion over a seven-year period. The ATI will allow industry and academic researchers to develop technology for the next generation of quieter, more energy efficient aircraft, and it will help secure in the UK the research and development activity necessary to win work on future aircraft programmes.

    The range of European and UK research programmes in which the company is involved are aimed at improving the environmental performance of future aircraft by reducing fuel burn and emissions through the use of advanced materials and advanced engineering technologies. Projects also focus on improving manufacturing efficiency and sustainability through the development of high value manufacturing processes required to deliver new, innovative product designs to meet and exceed customers’ needs and expectations.

    Since being established in 1957 in Fraserburgh, Scotland, Gray & Adams has grown substantially and now consists of four well established manufacturing sites within the UK and Ireland. Since the founding of the company, Gray & Adams has evolved as a manufacturer, evidenced by the vast product range and bespoke capabilities.

    Traditionally, the core product portfolio included a complete range of refrigerated trailers and rigid bodies but twin and lifting deck trailers now also make up a large proportion of production, both in dry freight and refrigerated configurations. Market demand has also prompted Gray & Adams to diversify the product range to include refrigerated storage solutions, insulated side access loading trailers and mobile shop facilities as well as highly specified chick carrying and prisoner escort vehicles. The range also incorporates the conversion of panel vans for temperature-controlled operations.

    A comprehensive after sales support system is also integrated into our portfolio to enhance the lifecycle efficiency of your fleet.

    Today, the group turns over in the region of £100 million per year. Supplying most of the supermarket chains in the UK and in fact, they are now the only refrigerated manufacturer still supplying Tesco out of an original list of approved suppliers.  As well as the high profile retail customers, they supply most major foodservices companies, chilled and frozen food distributors and haulage / logistics companies, as well as leading dairy companies, other food wholesalers / manufacturers and many key parcel delivery companies. Having said this, at Gray & Adams believe in treating all customers with the same importance regardless of their size or status and the same attention to detail is paid when designing a product for the smallest owner-driver business as is given to the largest logistics operation.

    Since Gray & Adams Ireland gained BS EN ISO 9001:2000 certification in August 2007, the company now has group-wide accreditation to the standard, giving customers assurance that they will always receive a high quality, consistent product.

    Remaining family owned, they have maintained a traditional approach to business even within the structure of what is now a large enterprise. Gray & Adams' business is always carried out with a personal and hands-on approach but through our unwavering commitment to product, service and site development, they are now at the forefront of the industry as the UK's leading manufacturer of bespoke trailers and vehicles for temperature-controlled and specialised dry freight applications.

  • R A Irwin
    R A Irwin
    | Tel: +44 (0)28 3833 6215 | Web: http://blinds.ra-irwin.co.uk

    R A Irwin is a 63 year old family-owned and run textile manufacturing company. Now into its 3rd generation it manufactures creative, innovative and design-led fabrics for the window fashion and mattress ticking markets. 

    Uniquely vertically-integrated, the firm can make special yarns, warp, weave, laminate, print and stenter virtually all of its own fabrics. This gives it unbelievable control and leads to the firm’s unsurpassed quality, service and reputation for solving problems quickly. Add to these manufacturing capabilities, the in-house design team and direct-to-trade sales channels for an unmatched customer experience.

    R A Irwin was founded in 1951 by Alex Irwin (Robert Alexander Irwin). The original business was a handkerchief sewing operation based in Magheralin, but the rise of paper tissues brought an end to the woven handkerchief business. By the end of the1960’s the company was utilizing its stitching facilities to convert warp knitted fabrics into sheets and bedspreads which it sold to the UK and Irish retail and mail order outlet. In 1968 a space was rented in a vacant mill in Portadown and a modern wide width dyeing and finishing facility was set up, followed in 1971 with the installation of a wide width rotary screen printer, one of the first of its type in the world. 1980 saw the death of Alex Irwin and control of the business passing to his 2 sons – Ian and Gordon.

    As the warp knitting industry fell into decline in the mid 1970’s the company moved into stitch bonding. These fabrics were being printed for the bed cover and curtain market and also, significantly, for the mattress manufacturing industry. 

    The next major event was a fire in 1985 which completely destroyed the Portadown factory. This event would have finished off many businesses, but the company designed and installed a large stitch bonding and printing plant in a custom built factory on the site specifically for the mattress market. 

    The 1990’s saw R A Irwin grow rapidly. In 1992 a new factory was to set up to facilitate an innovative £3m non-woven line. This plant manufactured a high tenacity needle-punched fabric for the furniture and bedding trade. This became the “Raitex” division. The fabric was primarily used for spring pocketing in mattresses and linings for furniture. It also marked the first significant experiences for the company in export markets. Agents were appointed in France, Germany, Poland, Spain and Taiwan. For a while Raitex looked like it could become a runaway success; however the advent of cheaper spun-bond fabrics undercut the market for Raitex.

    So the next major strategic turn was very important for the company today – window blinds. 

    R A Irwin was approached by a group of window blind makers who used Stitchbond as a low-cost vertical blind. Trials were done and a usable product manufactured to sell to this new market, which was hungry for fresh supply lines. 

    Raitex was closed in 2004 and the proceeds from the sale of the plant were re-invested in more weaving looms, to bring the total number of machines up to 32.

    In the firm’s recent history, one of the key strategic investments has been in digital printing technology. This technology complemented the in-house designers’ print backgrounds and flair. It also underpinned the company’s ability to respond quickly to trends and give our customers what they want and need.

    The culture of innovation is alive and well at R A Irwin. The firm continues to develop new products, invest in design and manufacturing capability. With deep and strong foundations the company is well-placed to adapt, survive and thrive, especially so in the fast-changing world of home furnishings in the 21st Century.

  • Rooney Fish

    Rooney Fish, Est: 1975 is a family run business with John Rooney, his wife Rosemary and son Andrew at it’s helm. It is the biggest fish processing plant of its kind in the whole of Ireland. They specialise in the processing of the finest catch from the Irish Sea including white fish, prawns and shellfish (King Scallops, Whelks, Periwinkles, Crab, Shrimp and Lobster) which it sells to customers throughout Europe and beyond. The main plant is located at quayside in Kilkeel ensuring the capturing of the freshest produce. The plant is 6000m sq. It is a modern fully EC approved facility with the most up-to-date technology. The processes currently running are: (1) Blast Freezing, (2) Nitrogen Freezing, (3) cooking facilities, (4) 5000 m sq. of cold storage capacity, (5) fully automated graders, (6) a variety of packaging operations and (7) an in-house laboratory facility. This is matched only by the highest standards in hygiene and sanitation supported by highly qualified and motivated teams of operatives. This is proven by our successful attainment of quality awards in food processing which is on-going and continuous.

    Rooney Fish started out almost by accident: at least, that’s the idea you could get if you listened to John Rooney! “I was a jack of all trades,” he says. He started by training as a bricklayer, then became a car mechanic, and also worked for a while as a joiner. “I suppose you could say that I had a good background knowledge about anything to do with repairing old buildings or old vehicles.”

    But, John had an entrepreneurial spirit, and when an accident prevented him from working for a while and a group of friends persuaded him to buy fish on their behalf at the Kilkeel fish auction and bring it to their factory in Wexford, the seeds were sown. “I progressed to having small premises of my own to fillet and smoke fish and pack whole prawns for Europe.” Purely by organic growth, larger premises were required as the business expanded until now it is not only one of the largest, but also one of the best equipped and technologically advanced fish processing plants serving European markets and turning over more than £6 million annually.

    Rooney doesn’t just sell prawns of course. In addition to langoustines the boats bring in scallops, crab of various sorts, periwinkles, razor fish, mussels, oysters and shrimps. These are brought straight from the quayside to the factory, prepared to the strictest EU quality standards and Nitrogen fast frozen at -130 degrees. Packaging is done to the customers’ requirements and can be any way they want it – gas flush (MAP), shrink wrapped, vacuum packed or, for fresh product, in trays. The product leaves the factory, says John Rooney, ready for the consumer to pick it off the supermarket shelf in France the next day.

    The business continues to expand too, with a new cooking line obtained from a leading supplier in Canada, at a cost of more than £500,000 and a £750 000 investment in state of the art cooking equipment.

    The logistics have to be coordinated to get product to customers without delay. John Rooney explains: “We cook on mornings when we have to ship to Boulogne. If we cook this morning we have it in Boulogne tomorrow morning, and it is distributed from there to the supermarkets via Rooney’s distribution partner Agrifish based in Viterbo, from where it supplies the entire country, with other distributors in Spain (Barcelona) and France (Boulogne). Now it has its sights set on Eastern Europe and is already selling its products in Slovenia. In fact, John Rooney has created a business that provides high quality products and unrivalled customer service to discerning customers – a happy ‘accident’ indeed!

    Potatoes are our passion’

    Since Angus Wilson started the business from the family farm in 1980s Wilson’s has grown from strength to strength. Now employing over 100 staff who work from a 6 acre site in County Armagh. The Company is one of the premier potato packers and processors in Ireland, holding key accounts with many of the leading food retailers in the country. Not only do they supply a branded Wilson’s Country range, they supply various own label ranges, exemplifying the trust placed in the company.

    One of the keys to their development is the continual investment in the company. Investment in premises, staff and growers ensures that they offer a quality product and excellent service. They want to help retailers make the most out of their potato category so that consumers get what they want. Wilson’s are passionate about spuds and strive to make people inspired by potatoes, stating ‘the poor potato can get a bit of a bad press so that is why we are constantly innovating’. They challenge themselves by evolving their variety portfolio, packaging and production processes in order to make yours the best potato experience. They want you to realize how exciting potatoes actually are! By their nature, potatoes are seasonal, meaning Wilson’s can handle up to 30 different varieties of potatoes in one year. This equates to about 3.5 million individualpotatoes per week...now that's a lot of potatoes! ‘Dealing with such a vast number of spuds means we truly are passionate about potatoes’.

     

    History In 1987 Angus Wilson commences packing potatoes from his family farm in County Armagh, delivering the Wilson’s Brand to many local shops. Also at this time, Angus comes up with the concept of ‘Garden Potatoes’- Garden potatoes are grown in harmony with the environment, just as they would be grown in your own garden! This product still proves popular to this day .

    By 1993 Wilson’s Country begins supplying to Henderson's and Wellworths. In 1993 they were listed with Marks & Spencer, and the following Wilson’s Country moved from the farm to a dedicated packhouse at Mahon Road in Portadown. Wilson's Country was now employing 25 people with a turnover of £1.6m and selling 100 tonnes of potatoes per week.

    Wilson’s growth again necessitated bigger premises in the Carn Industrial estate, Craigavon, County Armagh. Agriculture Minister Lord Roker officially opened the building in 2006.
