McArdle Skeath, one of Ireland’s leading supply chain management providers, has opened the doors on its brand new, temperature controlled facility in Hollystown, Dublin. The supply chain facility represents a €20 million investment by the company, with a view to servicing the nutritional and bio-tech sectors. The company, 50 years in business this year, has added the Hollystown facility to its existing headquarters in Inniskeen, Dundalk.
Attending the opening ceremony, Taoiseach Leo Varadkar called the new opening great news for Dublin 15. “I wish to congratulate McArdle Skeath for the successful expansion of their business,” An Taoiseach said. “This large-scale warehouse will provide up to 100 jobs over the next 12 months here in Hollystown, serving the nutritional and bio-tech sectors. I know McArdle Skeath pride themselves on exceeding the highest standards, and I have no doubt they will take the same approach to success with this new facility. I wish all the staff and management the very best of luck.”
Meanwhile, Micheál McArdle, Managing Director and CEO of McArdle Skeath, highlighted the significance of the new facility and how the company has become. “Our facility and the standards to which we operate are designed to not only meet, but exceed the specification required to service the nutritional and pharmaceutical sectors,” McArdle said. “This investment reaffirms McArdle Skeath’s commitment to our core values in providing compliant solutions to Ireland’s export and import markets”.
With a workforce of 150 people, the new facility has created 20 new jobs initially. An additional 80 positions will come on stream as McArdle Skeath expands further into contract manufacturing to include – lean manufacturing operations, repackaging, rebranding, quality assurance inspections and sampling.
Founded in 1968, McArdle Skeath has two facilities in Ireland. To learn more, visit www.mcardleskeath.com for more information.
