Belfasts Delta Packaging creates 100 jobs with 40m investment

Northern Irish cartons group Delta Print and Packaging has created 100 new jobs through a £40m investment including a factory extension
Established in 1981, the company supplies the retail food, consumer electronics, household goods, dairy, pharmaceutical and food service sectors.

Neal McCone, director at Delta Packaging, told Packaging News that the majority of the investment would be in high definition flexo print equipment that is used for high-end carton production, enhancing its existing flexo print facility, which sits along the company’s litho operations.

Rotary and flatbed diecutting will also be part of the investment, which will be geared towards high-volume production runs and significantly enhancing downstream coating capabilities.

Thirty-one of the new jobs are already in place, and the remaining 69 will see the company’s workforce increase to 269.

Delta customers include McDonald’s, KFC, Greiner Packaging and Nokia, and around 95% of its sales are outside Northern Ireland, notably to France, Benelux, Germany and Scandinavia.

The regional business development agency Invest NI, part of the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Investment, has offered £4.6m to assist the plans.

Terry Cross, Delta’s chairman and joint managing director, said: “We are making this major investment in response to opportunities to grow sales across a number of existing customer accounts, in particular with McDonald’s, as well as acquiring new accounts.

The Northern Ireland First Minister Peter Robinson and Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness visited the factory and welcomed the announcement.

“Today’s £40m investment by Delta Print & Packaging creating 100 new jobs is good news for the local economy and reinforces the company’s 30 year commitment to invest and re-invest in Belfast,” said Robinson.

McGuinness added: “Delta is a fantastic example of a local company using the skills and work ethic of local people to compete globally.”
