Quinn Glass To Create 20 Jobs

There are 20 new jobs in the offing in Fermanagh as Quinn Glass has invested more than £41 million in upgrading two furnaces at its plant in Derrylin.

The investment will also include the installation of state of the art inspection equipment that will reduce wastage.

Adrian Curry, Director of Quinn Glass in Derrylin, said: "This investment will consolidate our position in the industry and allow us to consider further expanding our operation here.

"With this new equipment we can maximise our productivity and profitability."

Quinn Glass is investing £41,487,000 in total, with Invest NI offering support of £750,000.

Quinn Glass is owned by the Quinn Group and operates from two sites, one in Derrylin where it currently employs 378 staff, and the other in Cheshire, England. It is the second largest glass container manufacturer in the UK.

The company has also benefited from Invest NI’s Business Health Check, which benchmarks a business’s performance against similar businesses in the United Kingdom, Ireland and beyond. This has allowed Quinn Glass to identify its strengths, and weaknesses and set strategic priorities.
