Larne-based company Stealth Translations has won Exporter of the Year at the Enterprise Northern Ireland Awards.
The firm, which has its head office in LEDCOM’s Willowbank Business Park, provides highly technical translations in any language.
It now operates in more than 23 countries around the world providing translations to businesses in the fields of medicine, law, manufacturing, education, finance and technology.
The company, started by husband and wife Stephen and Grace Weir in 2007, has tapped into the growing need for international communications on a global scale and export sales now account for 91 per cent of its turnover.
Managing Director Stephen Weir commented: “From our base at Willowbank in Larne we are able to organise communications to and from any language in the world.
“We have a bespoke office which meets our need for fast, efficient electronic communication and we have enough space to increase our workforce as the business grows.
“We are working from a cost effective base in Larne but able to compete on a world stage.”
Chief Executive Officer of LEDCOM Ken Nelson commented that the success of this company was down to its director’s innovative thinking and ability to embrace new technology.
He stated: “We congratulate them on winning the Exporter of the Year Award. It is well-deserved and a testament to their vision and hard work.”
Chief Executive of Enterprise NI, Gordon Gough, said: “Enterprise Northern Ireland is the voice of local entrepreneurship and we’re very pleased to celebrate great examples of local ingenuity and talent.”
