Comtek has announced the launch of its new dedicated Nortel Repair Lab in Belfast. Supported by Invest Northern Ireland, Comtek’s facilities are housed within Nortel’s former Northern Ireland headquarters, and served by ex-Nortel engineers. Building on the already successful Nortel operations at Comtek’s Deeside HQ, this expansion comes as the company continues to see international demand for its specialist Nortel repair services soar.
By establishing operations in Nortel’s former Northern Ireland Headquarters in Belfast, Comtek is able to re-use Nortel’s technology, as well as Belfast’s local pool of talent, thus enabling the team to deliver Nortel repair services on an international scale.
“Comtek identified a gap in the market for Nortel specialist expertise and through the hard work of our in-house engineers, we have been able to provide the support that end-users need,” said Askar Sheibani, CEO at Comtek. “The opening of our Belfast operations represents our latest measure to provide support for these end-users. Our continued investment in world class engineers, to provide the specialist services required to service and maintain Nortel equipment, means that end-users can now continue to use their products for the foreseeable future, confident in the knowledge that expert support is readily available through Comtek.”
Comtek has been assisted in its expansion by the team at Invest Northern Ireland, who have provided the company with investment towards the company’s creation of 21 jobs and establishment in the region.
“I’m delighted that, with Invest NI’s support, Northern Ireland has again been able to secure another valuable inward investment from a company in the growing IT Telecoms and Network Servicing sector,” said Alastair Hamilton, Invest NI’s Chief Executive. “Through its services, which essentially extend the life of telecoms and network assets, Comtek is also helping to address the growing global problem of electronic waste and is therefore contributing to environmental sustainability.”
