€1 Million Investment in New Premises and New Machinery

ADC Barcode is delighted to announce that a €1 million investment has been made to expand and grow the company.

The Company, which is a leading label manufacturer and value added reseller specialising in the development and management of supply chain and mobility systems based on automatic data capture and wireless technology, is hoping that this significant investment will see the business grow substantially in the next few years.

Investment in New Premises

The first phase of the investment has come in the form of a new premises, located in Greenogue Business Park. The new site is triple the size (over 6000 sq.ft) of the old premises. There is also scope to add a mezzanine floor which would increase the production floor to over 8000 sq. ft.

The move allows the Company to grow the staff pool and increase the number of printing presses in the factory. Which in turn will not only maintain current clients but exposes the business to a wider pool of potential clients.

According to Ciaran Fitzpatrick, Sales Manager, this move will also allow for ADC Barcode to expand its sales and production team by 25%.

“This is a hugely exciting time for us. We are striving to maintain and push the growth that we have been experiencing over the last number of years. We have invested €1 million in new premises and in new machinery but we have a continued investment plans to further support our commitment to growth and improvement.”

Investment in New Machinery

The investment included the purchasing of two new state of the art flexographic label manufacturing machines. The new machinery will allow the Company to double its product output and decrease lead times.

According to Production Manager, Brian Ray “Label manufacturing accounts for 40% of our overall business. So it is so important that we have the best machinery in the industry. The new presses are best in class which will allow the production department to double its daily output. All the while significantly cutting down on lead times.”
