SDC Trailers have secured a £1.25m order from Saudi company, the Rezayat Group, for 60 new platform trailers.
The Rezayat Group is headquartered in Al-Khobar, Saudi Arabia and is active in a number of industries including oil and gas, engineering and transportation.
The trailers will be manufactured and exported to Saudi Arabia by the end of this year.
The posts will be spread across the engineering, operative and management departments at SDC's Toomebridge plant.
Employing more than 500 people, SDC Trailers has seen a period of rapid growth in the last 18 months. The firm is expected to announce a number of larger contract announcements in the near future.
Chief Executive Mark Cuskeran said: "These are exciting times at SDC, where we are seeing the return on all of our hard work over the past few years. By making our manufacturing practises more efficient, and lowering our costs across our three plants, we have massively boosted our competitiveness, and we are seeing the benefits of that now.
"We're delighted to announce further job creation to boost the local economy, and we expect to be making more similar contract announcements in the coming months."
