Sulzer celebrates 50 years of engineering innovation in Wexford
Simon Coveney TD - Minister for Enterprise Trade & EmploymentCongratulations to the Sulzer team as you celebrate 50 years in operation here in Ireland. It’s a great endorsement of our country that a leading global company such as yours has chosen Ireland to do business for all those years. I understand the Wexford site has been operational since 1973 and in that time has created hundreds of valuable jobs for Wexford. I wish to congratulate Sulzer on your valuable contribution and long standing commitment to Ireland.
During the celebration, there was also recognition for a number of long-serving employees, including team leader, Larry Roche, who has worked at Wexford for 47 years. In fact, over 70 members of staff have more than thirty years’ experience at the manufacturing site, demonstrating the loyalty and depth of expertise that are retained in the business.
Brendan Sinnott, Managing Director at Sulzer’s Wexford plant, concludes: “We have developed market-leading products that are exported around the world, all thanks to our outstanding workforce and great support from the IDA. The dedication of our staff ensures that we can design and manufacture cutting-edge products that offer our customers superior efficiency and reliability. Together, we have constantly challenged ourselves on continuous improvements, striving for manufacturing excellence and developing some of the most efficient products in the market”.
Mary Buckley, Interim CEO, IDA Ireland said: “IDA Ireland has had a close working relationship with Sulzer since the company first established in the South East, providing a wide range of supports, particularly around its research and development agenda.
So, we are delighted to join you in celebrating this significant milestone – 50 years, of employment in Wexford. IDA Ireland remains committed to winning and supporting jobs and investment in regional locations and we look forward to continuing our longstanding partnership with Sulzer. I wish the Sulzer team continued success.”
