Plastics firm moves into Carnew
IT’S bonanza time for jobs in Arklow and the local economy is set for a major upswing this year.
That’s the optimistic outlook for the town from top jobs agencies.
And this week three major new industries came closer to setting up in Arklow, Carnew and Baltinglass while a fourth company has announced it will be increasing its workforce within the next few months.
Although a plastics manufacturing company due to begin production in the Carnew IDA facility will only employ a small number of workers this year, the IDA is holding out for long term jobs prospects at the firm.
The company, which has yet to be named is owned by an Austrian and will manufacture plastic containers for use with inhalers for asthmatics.
Already, the company has begun to move into the 7,000 sq. ft. factory and it’s understood four employees have been recruited with several more workers due to be taken on shortly.
Local councillor Pat Doran this week welcomed the new plastics company to Carnew and said the company would provide a major boost to both the local economy and to the jobless figures.
