Rhenus Ireland to build a new western Ireland site

[ August 16, 2022   //   ]

Rhenus Ireland is building a new site at its Rhenus Parkmore facility in Galway, western Ireland.

Once completed, the new facility will double the Rhenus Parkmore’s existing capacity to 20,000sq m with a multi-client warehouse to service the west of Ireland.

IDA (Industrial Development Agency) Ireland, together with Clodagh Higgins, Mayor of Galway City, attended a sod-turning event at the Rhenus Parkmore facility on 10 August.

The building will be operational in the fourth quarter of 2023, accommodating existing customers and creating space for new ones.

David Williams, chief executive of Rhenus Road, region North Europe, said: “The new facility will allow Rhenus to unlock new opportunities and partner with businesses to provide world-class logistics and supply chain solutions.”

“The opening of this new site builds on the strong customer relationships built by management and staff over 20 years. This new facility is part of our 2022-2027 development plan, providing for an increase in our logistics capacity for existing and new customers on the island of Ireland. A number of other projects are also being considered by Rhenus in Ireland,” added managing director of Rhenus Ireland, Declan Sinnott.
