The Celtic Pure plant, located on the outskirts of Corcreagh in Monaghan, will create up to 60 new jobs during the construction phase of the expansion, as well as securing the future for the 50 people currently employed at the facility.Chief Executive of Celtic Pure, Padraig McEneaney said. ‘The investment in our facilities will further create 25 + new jobs, increase our annual production capacity by 65% and see our annual turnover rise twofold by 2017. Our target is to bring the business to the stage where we can target sales of€18 million to €20 million.’‘We’ve come a long way since 2000, with only two employees, supplying local customers with water in 5 litre drums. This investment is a tremendous vote of confidence in our staff who have produced and sold record volumes of bottled water last year, in Ireland and worldwide via indirect exportation to China, United Arab Emirates, USA and Australia,’ he added.

The new development will commence construction on 12 acres of adjoining land to the current premises in May of this year.
