Millstreet company on the move to Macroom

O'Flynn Medical is set to move "lock stock and barrel"

A massive idle building in Macroom is set to become home to O'Flynn Medical in Millstreet who are set to move 'lock stock and barrel' to the new premises. 

At the Blarney Macroom Municipal meeting on Monday, the disposal of the former council-owned Radon Building in Macroom for €413,000 was on the agenda. 

Cllr Michael Creed (FG) said: "I have been working on this for the past eight to nine months and I am delighted that O'Flynn Medical will move to Macroom. The council-owned Radon building has been idle for at least 10 years, so it really is great that O'Flynn Medical, who are highly respected in their field, will move with their 30 staff, and it is also great that, down the line, further jobs will be created. All in all, this will be great for Macroom." 

Cllr Creed noted that the company will move "lock stock and barrel" to Macroom and cited that one of the main reasons for the move was the non-possibility of expansion for the company in Millstreet.  The Radon Building in Macroom is 1,733.83 square metres. 

O'Flynn Medical  (OFM) was founded 18 years ago by husband and wife team Tadhg and Anne O'Flynn. They began as a technical services company, providing reactive and preventative maintenance services to the HSE, care facilities, nursing homes and private homes across Ireland. All equipment is required to be routinely serviced, a service which OFM continues to provide. 

In 2014, they moved into their current premises, which was the former old creamery in Millstreet. At this facility there is a state of the art decontamination facility. 

In addition, the old creamery building was restored to be eco-friendly with a rainwater harvesting facility, UV water-filtering system, air to water pumps for hot water and heating, and a new underfloor heating system.
