Brian O’Neill, chairperson of Dundalk Business Investment District Scheme (BIDS) has congratulated National Pen on its latest plans to create 200 jobs over the next five years.
“National Pen has shown a strong commitment to Dundalk for over 25 years and we have seen it expand with the move to custom made premises last year,” Mr O’Neill said.
“The announcement by the Taoiseach in Dundalk, that National Pen is to increase it’s workforce by 200 over the next five years demonstrates the forward thinking of the company, which with its international headquarters in Dundalk, can only be a positive for the town.”
The Louth Economic Forum has also welcomed the jobs announcement.
The Forum chairman Padraic White, said it is tremendous to see a company which has been based in Louth for over a quarter of a century make such a commitment to job creation over a five-year period.
This places the Dundalk facility in an increasingly strong position.
“I congratulate National Pen on its success to date and look forward to the Dundalk facility’s continued expansion in the years ahead,” he said.
