Belleek Pottery, one of Fermanagh’s best known and loved brands, has been in business since 1857 and today is a major employer in the county. Established and based in Belleek, the company also owns Galway Irish Crystal and Aynsley China. In 2003, Belleek broadened its range by establishing a new brand called “Belleek Living.” This fresh contemporary gift and casual dining collection seeks to give the modern Belleek customer a product that compliments their interior décor and lifestyles. Belleek continues to create products both decorative and useful for today’s generation.
Export for Belleek is substantial with approximately 60% of its business in the USA.The business believes that exports are vital to the ongoing success for the group as it’s a market that’s growing along with huge potential for further growth and expansion.
Webtec, which is based in Enniskillen, is a privately owned business employing over 125 people. Formed in 1987, turnover has increased from £9 million 4 years ago to £17.5 million this year.
The company specialises in the production of reel fed wrap round labels for the European soft drinks industry and has an impressive list of international brands and supplies to all the major supermarkets. Webtech can design and manufacture several forms of labels and sleeves to meet changing market needs.
The business has grown substantially in recent years and as a result has invested £5 million into plant development in Enniskillen and purchased two companies in England: Primopost in Buxton and ASP Flexibles in Haydock.
The export market accounts for 30% of turnover but that will increase significantly with strategic plans for international growth.
