Opening the new €5 million euro facility underlines their commitment to Ireland and will allow for their rapid expansion plans. I am looking forward to the natural spinoff from the job creation in our local community says Councillor Murphy. This is exactly the type of progress that is needed here.

It’s important to recognise that the available workforce and geographical location have been major contributing factors in the decision to relocate to Balbriggan, said Murphy. I would like to thank all the agencies especially the IDA Ireland who helped the company in its initial move to Ireland, and in its relocation to Balbriggan.
