Modern Tyres To Create Over 20 New Jobs

Modern Tyres has announced it is to create over 20 new jobs.

The jobs are part of a £5.6million investment to diversify its commercial products and services offering.

The company has established a new division, Modern Wheel Solutions, which will be situated at its new 81,000 sq. ft. purpose-built factory in Carnbane Business Park in Newry. The new division will differ from its core business of tyre wholesaling and retailing to focus on outsourced end-to-end services for tyre manufacturers and Original Equipment Manufacturers.

Kevin Holland, Invest Northern Ireland's CEO, said: "Modern Tyres is a well-known and long-established Northern Ireland company. It is wonderful to see its continued growth and innovation journey offering a new value-added service to manufacturers. Its expansion into tyre and rim assembly as Modern Wheel Solutions will allow it to offer customers a one-stop shop across its business and broaden its offering to attract future global clients.

"Our relationship with the company began in 2019 when it purchased a site on Carnbane Industrial Estate and we are happy that our Southern Regional team has been able to support its new venture onto Carnbane Business Park so soon after. Its investment will bring new skills and expertise to the team, growing its workforce to over 200 people across the company in Northern Ireland. This is great news for the local Newry, Mourne & Down District Council area, as it will generate almost £650,000 in additional annual salaries for the Northern Ireland economy."

Invest NI has offered Modern Tyres over £580,000 towards the construction of its new factory, marketing activities and the creation of the 23 jobs. Jobs on offer include managerial roles, sales engineers, operatives, office staff and delivery drivers.
