Combilift launches €50 million global headquarters and manufacturing facility at Ireland

Forklift manufacturer and material handling solutions provider Combilift has officially opened its new global headquarters and manufacturing facility in Monaghan, Ireland. The new 46,500 sq. m purpose–built factory is set on a 100-acre site with room for future expansion when required. The facility will allow Combilift to realise its ambitious growth plans. Martin McVicar, Managing Director, Combilift, said: “We have employed an additional 230 people since we announced our plans for this factory in 2015 and the combination of this state-of-the-art production plant and the growing skilled workforce will allow us to double production within the next five years.”

Speaking about how India has evolved for the group, McVicar adds, “There is massive growth in cold stores in India and here we see opportunity for us. Lot of investment is going on in the manufacturing sector. And, as the manufacturing grows, opportunity seems large for us.”
