LAGAN BRICK FIRM TO PROVIDE 30 NEW JOBS IN KINGSCOURT

26 March 2015 No Comments by The Northern Standard

Lagan Brick Company has confirmed it   is to create 30 new jobs at Kingscourt. The jobs will be located at Drumgill, on the site of its old Lagan Brick facility.

The development, which is being supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through Enterprise Ireland, has been made possible by a recent upturn in the Irish and UK markets.

With signs of confidence returning to the market, the Board of Lagan Brick has identified an opportunity to meet increasing demand, particularly out of the UK by reinvesting in brick manufacturing here in Ireland. The factory will be Ireland’s only such facility; the current market of 30 million bricks on the island of Ireland is serviced by imports.

Welcoming the announcement yesterday (Wed) the Enterprise Minister. Mr. Richard Bruton T.D., said the news was “a great boost for the area.”
