ONE HUNDRED NEW jobs have been announced for Dunboyne.

The 100 jobs are being created at Alltech’s European headquarters in Dunboyne, doubling its workforce. The company develops and manufactures natural feed supplements for the agricultural sector.

The news was welcomed by Fine Gael Meath East TD, Regina Doherty, who described it as “a great vote of confidence in the local workforce”.

This facility in Dunboyne has gone from strength to strength since it first opened. Specifically, the newly expanded Bioscience Centre has trebled the capacity of the facility.

She explained that as the centre for Alltech’s European operations, the new facility will play a major role in research, marketing and quality control.

“The company has invested more than €10 million in this expanded venture, which illustrates its commitment to this Dunboyne location,” said Doherty, who added that she hopes the new jobs will have a positive knock on impact on other businesses in Dunboyne.
