Plas­tics firm moves into Carnew

De­cem­ber 1995

Bray People - - NEWS -

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.
