Veon open office in Castleisland
KERRY Sinn Féin TD Martin Ferris TD – the party’s spokesperson on Agriculture and Fisheries officially opened Veon’s new regional office at the Advance Factory Unit at Castleisland Mart last Wednesday morning.
Veon is Ireland’s leading forestry company and has expanded over the past year to meet the professional forestry needs of farmers and forest owner clients.
Deputy Ferris welcomed the new office which he said was a vote of confidence in the commercial forestry sector in Kerry.
He said the new office also highlighted the increasingly important role that forestry plays in providing income diversification opportunities for farmers, especially in light of continuing uncertainty over the effects of Brexit on farm incomes.
Veon’s Castleisland Mart offices will be managed by foresters Chris Byrne and Daniel O’Connell.
“With Brexit looming in the background it makes more sense now than ever before to protect future income streams and take advantage of the grants and premia payments available from the Forest Service” Chris Byrne said.
