We are delighted to confirm that we have plans to create at least 10 new jobs in a bid to increase sales in England and Wales.
The expansion is being supported by a £600,000 loan from the Growth Loan Fund. Finance for the Growth Loan Fund is provided by Invest NI and the Northern Ireland Local Government Officers Superannuation Committee (NILGOSC).

Tascomi Managing Director Richard Martin shares how the company’s foothold in Britain has developed quickly, “Last year we expanded our business into Wales and England, securing a major contract with the Welsh Purchasing Consortium, including up to 19 Local Authorities in Wales. We now hold a 35% share of the Welsh market. This year we would like to penetrate these markets further. The business has gone from strength to strength and we feel the time is right to add to our exceptionally talented workforce.” Furthermore Richard adds that Tascomi has plans to expand much further beyond the horizon, adding “Canada is another market that we have been looking closely at breaking in to. We have plans to attend trade shows over there in the next quarter, which we hope can help us build good contacts. We are an ambitious company with aspirations to expand into new markets. Finally, we’ll also be launching a new Planning software solution later this year. With the backing of the Growth Loan Fund, we are confident in taking the business into a new phase of growth.”
The Growth Loan Fund provides loans to established SMEs within Northern Ireland seeking access to growth finance. The company must be able to demonstrate both growth potential and export potential within sectors such as, manufacturing, engineering or tradable services.
