Lagan Brick to create 30 new jobs in Cavan
26 March 2015
Lagan Brick is to create 30 new jobs in Kingscourt, Co Cavan. The jobs will be located at Drumgill, Kingscourt on the site of its old Lagan Brick facility.
The development has arrived on the back of the recent upturn in the Irish and UK markets. With signs of confidence returning to the market, Lagan Brick has identified an opportunity to meet increasing demand by reinvesting in brick manufacturing in Ireland. The factory will be Ireland’s only such facility; the current market of 30 million bricks on the island of Ireland is serviced by imports.
Enterprise Minister Richard Bruton welcomed the announcement. “Lagan Brick is a great example of the type of Irish manufacturing, engineering and construction companies my Department supports in every region of the country, through Enterprise Ireland. I warmly congratulate Lagan Brick and wish them continued success for the future,” he said.
The company will commission one kiln in the first phase of its new operation, producing 12 million bricks per annum. The long term aim of the business is to have two kiln lines fully operational with a further eight million bricks potentially being produced if forecasts are met.
Twenty of the jobs will come on line immediately; the ten remaining positions will be phased in when the second kiln is in operation. It is estimated that a further 10 to 20 spin-off jobs will be created and sustained immediately in the area as a result of the investment.http://www.engineersjournal.ie/2015/03/26/lagan-brick-create-30-new-jobs-cavan/http://www.engineersjournal.ie/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/Lagan-Brick-Jobs.jpghttp://www.engineersjournal.ie/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/Lagan-Brick-Jobs-300x300.jpgNewsCavan,concrete,construction,jobs,manufacturing
