5th December 2011: Killarney Plastics creates 15 jobs
KILLARNEY Plastics has created 15 jobs at its Kerry factory on foot of growth in sales of its Tricel waste water treatment systems in Ireland, Britain and France.
With Killarney Plastics having recently been awarded a French statutory licence to trade in the waste water treatment sector, Irish Ambassador to France Paul Kavanagh formally opened the company’s technical service and distribution centre in Poitiers.
All of the French-bound Tricel products will be manufactured in Killarney, then shipped to the Poitiers factory for assembly and distribution throughout France.
Killarney Plastics managing director Michael Stack said: "The substantial growth in export sales to France is a massive boost for our company. The success of the Tricel brand in France has opened up other market opportunities for us in Europe; 2012 will see the launch of the Tricel brand in Italy and Spain."
Killarney Plastics has been supplying its Tricel products to the Irish and British markets since 1996. The company has a total staff of 240, with 110 in Kerry and the rest in its bases in Britain and now France.
