Chambers welcomes I.D.A announcement of 150 jobs to Castlebar

Fianna Fail T.D. for Mayo Lisa Chambers has welcomed the I.D.A announcement of 150 jobs to Castlebar

Speaking on the matter Deputy Chambers said ‘the announcement of 150 jobs by US Biotech firm Meissner to Castlebar is fantastic news for the County town. Meissner is a family business run by Chris and his wife Laura Meissner, Chris’ mother is actually from Ireland so there is a strong Irish connection there and it is great to see.’

“They have decided to expand their company into Europe and have chosen Ireland, and more importantly the West of Ireland as the location for their first European manufacturing base,” she continued.

“This is a significant and very welcome investment for the County town and will bring high quality and high paying jobs to Castlebar over 5 years,” she said

“Meissner have also purchased additional land beside the facility showing a long term commitment to Co Mayo in terms of their intention to expand the business over time,” she said.

“I want to commend the IDA and the Local Authority for their joint effort in securing this investment in Castlebar,” she said

“It was lovely to hear Chris at the launch speak about the great people of Mayo and how he knew the people of Mayo would help him grow his business,” she said

“I want to wish Chris and Laura the very best of luck in their new endeavour here in Castlebar,” she concluded.
