L'Derry-Based Tobermore Creates 95 News Jobs

L'Derry-based Tobermore has announced the creation of 95 new jobs following the completion of a new state-of-the-art Production Facility.

The new plant, which opened this week, has a gross internal floor area (GIFA) of 4416m2 and has created dozens of local jobs across many departments including production, despatch sales and administration. This is Tobermore's fourth block paving manufacturing facility and is projected to increase production capacity by over 30%.

David Henderson, Managing Director of Tobermore, commented on the investment: "I am extremely proud that our new factory is now operational. This is an astonishing achievement! This new plant will give us significant increased capacity to make another one million square metres of block paving per year.

"Amidst the backdrop of a global pandemic, where many firms are struggling, we recognise how fortunate we are to be able to undertake this level of capital investment and job creation.

"We are already looking forward to 2021 when we will be able to take huge amounts of new business on board."
