A €4 million investment in leading digital technology company Mayo is set to be unveiled, confirms The Connaught Telegraph.
The major announcement regarding Castlebar’s company, Multi-Color Corporation (MCC), will be made on Friday by Tánaiste and Minister of Enterprise, Trade and Employment Leo Varadkar.
He visits the county town for a number of engagements and meetings.
Located at Breaffy Road Business Park in the county town, the investment in MCC will result in the creation of 30 new jobs at the facility.
The state-of-the-art Castlebar factory is part of one of the largest labeling solutions providers in the world, serving a wide range of local, national and international markets.
Founded in 1916, Multi-Color Corporation has grown to become one of the largest and most award-winning label printers in the world, supporting many leading brands.
It established a presence in Ireland when it acquired the former Cashin Print Services in Castlebar a few years ago and has grown significantly since.
Local TD Alan Dillon described the investment as a major vote of confidence in the county emerging from the Covid-19 pandemic.
He said, “The multinational company has created very strong business ties in the region due to its high skills and professionalism.
“It is significant that An Tánaiste Leo Varadkar has chosen to make the official announcement in collaboration with the company. This is very good news.
“There are hopes that further investment will be made in other Mayo businesses as we put the business challenges imposed by Covid-19 firmly behind us.”
During his visit, An Tánaiste will launch the Western Regional Business Plan. By 2024, the plan will have developed a series of “marketing materials” for the western region and will use them to promote the region as a location of choice for investment.
It will also further position the region as an example in guiding and supporting the digital transition for businesses.
