Sysco announces 50 full time jobs following the latest phase of a multimillion-euro investment in its Limerick Distribution and support centre.
Sysco, Ireland’s largest food service provider, has confirmed 50 additional full-time jobs at its main support and regional distribution facility in Newcastle West, Limerick as part of its latest phase of a multimillion-euro investment in the facility.
With the addition of these new roles, the total headcount at the Limerick facility will surpass 400. Sysco employs 1,550 across its 9 facilities nationwide and is actively recruiting across all departments.
Minister of State Patrick O’Donovan welcomed the announcement during a visit to the facility;
“Sysco is a global leader in the food service industry and their commitment to investing in an additional 50 new full-time positions at its Newcastle West facility is a real boost to the region. It is a welcome and positive injection, delivering significant economic benefits and playing a pivotal role in sustaining our local prosperity. The roles will have a significant positive impact on the local economy, further establishing Sysco as one of the largest employers in the area.”
The Mayor of the City and County of Limerick, Cllr Gerald Mitchell says the latest in a series of recent investment wins for Newcastle West is cause for celebration;
“The delivery of 50 new jobs by food service provider, Sysco is another positive economic win for West Limerick. These jobs will have a further knock on effect for Newcastle West and the wider area. Following on so soon after Britvic announced a €6 million investment at Ballygowan, it is clear that companies can prosper in rural Limerick. The world class facilities at Limerick’s Regional Athletics hub and other top class amenities are adding to the attractiveness of Newcastle West as a place to live, work and settle down. I want to congratulate Sysco on their latest investment and wish them well in their continued expansion.”
Chief Executive of Limerick City and County Council, Dr Pat Daly highlighted the collaborative nature of doing business in Limerick:
“This investment by Sysco exemplifies the spirit of cooperation that defines Limerick. Limerick City and County Council works closely with local businesses, the community and relevant stakeholders to create an environment where companies like Sysco can thrive. It not only brings jobs to our county capital but also strengthens the entire community. Newcastle West is a testament to the success that can be achieved when we work together to build a brighter economic future for Limerick.”
