    Investment in new DB Schenker facilities in Ireland powered by growth in healthcare and technology sectors

    Four new facilities expand Irish operations • State of the art buildings now fully operational • Total investment in excess of EUR 94 million

    DB Schenker has successfully completed three of its four major development projects to provide larger, state-of-the-art operations in Ireland.  As part of a €94M investment in new facilities across the country, sites at Shannon (County Clare), Leixlip (County Kildare) and Baldonnel (County Dublin) are now complete and fully operational. An additional new facility in Dublin is shortly to commence construction to house DB Schenker’s Land operations in Ireland and is scheduled for completion in January 2025.

    Demand from Healthcare and Technology customers is powering strong growth across DB Schenker’s business in Ireland, which now employs 800 people.  The global logistics provider initiated extensive facility investment to cater for ongoing and new customer needs across the country.

    Eoghan Turner Head of Real Estate for the UK & Ireland says: “The last three years have seen a period of major growth at DB Schenker which has resulted in significant new investment in Irish Real Estate, as well as the upgrading of our property portfolio across the UK & Ireland cluster. We have been successful in delivering several large-scale projects, not least the construction of our 220,000 sq. ft. LEED Gold Leixlip facility, a long-term lease of 130,000 sq. ft at Baldonnell Business Park, and the delivery of our new facility in Shannon.  We will continue to concentrate on similar high quality, sustainable assets as we go into the future”.
