Nine new jobs are to be created in Belfast after a label manufacturer opened a state-of-the-art factory.

Label One officially opened its new £1.6m premises on Monday in the Ballygomartin area of the city.

Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Investment, Arlene Foster, attended the opening ceremony.

The investment was supported by Invest NI and the European Regional Development Fund.

The minister said: "Label One's move to this impressive facility reflects its ambition to become the leading player in the print and labelling sector."

North Belfast MLA William Humphrey also welcomed the jobs announcement

He said: "This investment is great news for North Belfast. It shows clearly that lean, innovative businesses can grow and thrive in the area."
