McArdle Skeath opens cold store unit in Dublin

McArdle Skeath opens cold store unit in Dublin

McArdle Skeath has opened a 134.5K SF cold store in Hollystown, Dublin 15 – and says it could double in size.

Opened as Brexit negotiations over the status of the border between Northern Ireland and the European Union reach a crucial stage, the Dundalk-based business says the new supply chain facility represents a €20M investment.

Skeath Managing director Micheál McArdle said the facility ease of access to the M50, N3 and M1 motorways, Dublin Airport and Dublin Port could double.

He was speaking at the launch event attended by Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadker.

The store is to meet the needs of the food and pharmaceutical sectors along with rebranding and repackacing.

The critical nature of pharmaceutical products demand temperature integrity between +2°C to +8°C and +15°C to +25°C.

The Northern Ireland agri-food industry is "in grave peril" because of the Stormont stalemate and unresolved Brexit issues, a major producer has warned. There are also fears it could damage the Republic’s food and farming sector.
