Tricel Announce 100 New Jobs

Killarney-based manufacturing and engineering group Tricel has announced it is to create 100 new jobs.

40 of the posts are to be situated at the firm's headquarters in Killarney.

The 40 new jobs in the Killarney HQ will be worth an extra €2.4m to the local economy.

The project is supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through Enterprise Ireland.

Tricel is a European leader in the development and manufacture of advanced and specialised composite products from water storage tanks and wastewater treatment systems to construction and building products, as well as specialist moulding and filler products for the manufacturing and automotive industries.

The company will invest in more resources to facilitate its expansion across the company and it is hoped that many of the new graduate positions could be filled from local third level colleges in the Munster region.

Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton TD, said: "Jobs are growing in every region of the country – however they are growing faster in some regions than in others. That is why at the heart of our Action Plan for Jobs is acclerating jobs growth in every region.

"Key to this is creating a powerful engine of Irish industry – companies like Tricel, operating in manufacturing and engineering sectors, often family owned, have huge capacity to drive employment growth in every town and village of the country.

"We have put in place a range of measures over the past four years to support the growth of companies like Tricel right around the country, and we have seen impressive employment growth in these companies.

"Today's announcement that Tricel is creating an extra 100 jobs, of which 40 in Kerry, is a huge boost for Killarney and for the whole South West. I wish Mike and all the team every success with this project."
