Opening James Leckey Ltd’s new £3million custom built factory in Lisburn, the Secretary of State Theresa Villiers said:

I am absolutely delighted to be here today with Arlene Foster jointly to open this wonderful facility.

The equipment provides life enhancing benefits to children and adults with disabilities, not just in Northern Ireland but across the whole of the United Kingdom and further afield.

I congratulate all who have been involved with the project and the move to Lisburn. It’s a great tribute to them that output has gone up by 30%. Yours is an excellent example of the types of businesses we want to see flourish in Northern Ireland - those that are creating jobs and helping to rebalance the economy and enabling Northern Ireland to compete in the global race.
