In addition, CASC is investing £2m in capital equipment so that it is the only engineering company in Northern Ireland to offer tube laser cutting, sheet metal fibre laser and 5 axis waterjet cutting under one roof.
The investment will see 40 new jobs being created and, with further plans for a global reach in Virginia, US, CASC hope to increase the number of new jobs to 100.
Mr Ewart and other council representatives had a tour of the CASC Lisburn premises. Together they discussed future growth of the business, as well as the range of council business support programmes available.
