Dromara-based company Rolltack has developed an innovative product to make transporting heavy and awkward equestrian equipment easier, with assistance from Invest Northern Ireland.
The small company, established in December 2011 by Clare Medland, used a range of Invest NI programmes to develop the Rolltack, a versatile saddle trolley.
Miss Medland, who runs the business with the support of Anne, her sister, and niece Louise, said: “The idea for Rolltack came from our own experiences in handling heavy and awkward riding tack. I hadn’t any design or manufacturing experience and turned to Invest NI for help. The support I received was fantastic at every level”.
Mark Bleakney, Invest NI Manager, said: “Rolltack is an excellent example of how our support can be deployed to help in converting a good idea arising from a hobby into a fully fledged product, and then in helping to establish a new business and launch it successfully in the marketplace”.
The business aims to create three new jobs over the next year.
