Tegral announces 30 new jobs at its plant in Athy

Buildings materials and systems firm Tegral will be expanding its workforce by 30 as it invests €7.3m into its manufacturing plant in Athy.

Ten of the openings have already become available and the remainder will be created before the end of the year.

€2.1m of the total investment will be spent immediately on new machinery for the firm while €5.3m will be pumped into existing machinery and infrastructure over the next three years.

Paddy Kelly, Managing Director, Tegral said: “This is a good day for Tegral and it’s pleasing to have some positive news for Athy after all the gloom of recent years.” 

“Our long-standing record of delivering high-quality products and good productivity along with a reputable flexible workforce stood the test.”

The largest employer in south County Kildare, Tegral currently has a workforce of 92 people and is a major contributor to the local economy.

Today’s announcement follows recent reports of a successful tender to supply fibre cement roof slates for the UK market.
