Allpipe Engineering Ltd has also received £180,000 of support from Invest NI.
The firm specialises in detail design, fabrication, insulation and installation of process and service pipework.
An electrical and instrumentation division and an orbital welding facility are due to be established which will allow the company to bid for higher value contracts, and diversify its products and services.
Allpipe Engineering Ltd hope to increase turnover by 60% over the next three years.
Kieran Connor, Chief Operating Officer with the firm, said: "We've identified an opportunity to increase export sales by targeting new sectors in the pharmaceutical and health food processing industries.
"The new electrical and instrumentation division and orbital welding facility will also allow us to offer a complementary set of products and services to our existing customer base.
"Invest NI's support has been essential in allowing us to quickly recruit skilled workers and also to undertake marketing to help establish our brand in the new target markets."
