Rain Harvesting Ireland (RHI) in Coleraine has won significant business with a major U.S. I.T. firm
The company currently supplies its systems to private and public sector clients in Northern Ireland, the Republic and Great Britain.
RHI Managing Director Jonathan Coyle commenting on the new export business, said: “This is an immensely significant and encouraging contract for us because it represents a terrific endorsement by one of the world’s biggest technology corporations. The solutions we offer are backed by our commitment to providing market leading service and after sales support. This contract with Apple will be extremely important to our developing export marketing activities in the Republic and other parts of the world,”
RHI has received a range of Invest NI assistance in the development and marketing of its technology and products including an innovation voucher, R&D support, which is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund, technical and design support in the development of the new system and assistance for export marketing.
Des Gartland, Invest NI North West Regional Office Manager, said: “We have worked closely with this progressive and ambitious company in the development of its impressive technology particularly in the conservation and recycling of rain water, a rapidly developing market opportunity. The company is now marketing its know-how and technology very professionally in export markets and is beginning to see success from its commitment to sales outside Northern Ireland.”
Jonathan Coyle added: “Invest NI’s guidance and practical assistance have been critically important to the development of the business and our recent and successful move into export markets.”
