Heineken Ireland unveiled its new-look headquarters on Monday following the completion of a multi-million euro upgrade.

Over 200 employees at the Cork site have seen the 128-year-old Malt House building at Leitrim Street completely transformed.

Built in 1889 by James J. Murphy, the iconic building was converted into Heineken Ireland's head office in 1992.

The most recent revamp, a quarter of a century on, aimed to create a vibrant and collaborative space, while staying true to the company's history.

The firm's commitment to sustainability through its ‘Brewing a Better World’ strategy was central to the upgrade, a project that utilised local contractors and suppliers.

While state-of-the-art systems and design to maximise light and minimise energy usage were implemented, old office equipment and furniture was donated to local Cork charities.

Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade Simon Coveney said that Heineken Ireland is a valued employer and economic contributor in the region.

Maggie Timoney, Managing Director, HEINEKEN Ireland said the extensive project has allowed the firm "to bring our great people and great products even closer together".  

"Our new look home is the perfect symbol of who we are, combining the best of our past with the bright ambition of our future," she said.
