Linen and laundry company Kings Laundry is to create 200 new jobs over the next two years as part of a €12m investment in a new facility in Little Island, Cork.
40 jobs will come on stream initially with recruitment to begin in early 2016. The company say they expect this to grow to up to 200 over the following two years.
Kings Laundry, which supplies linen and laundry services to the hospitality sector, has begun construction at a new purpose built, state-of-the-art 40,000 square foot facility, which is set to open in May 2016.
An Irish-owned and run company, Kings Laundry already employees 310 people in its facility in Tallaght, Dublin.
The construction of the new facility at the 3.5-acre site at Little Island involves an investment of €12 million. When it opens, King's Laundry say it will be the most modern and environmentally-friendly laundry facility in Europe.
Alan Murphy, sales director at Kings Laundry said: "We're delighted to be expanding our business with the construction of our new facility in Cork. The primary purpose of the new operation is to ensure we continue to offer an unbeatable service to our customers in the Munster region. We already have an extensive client base in Cork and the surrounding counties and we are looking to grow this even further.
"We are also delighted to be announcing that we will be recruiting for 40 new positions in Cork. Recruitment will begin early next year," he added.
