200 new jobs will be created by Combilift as part of a €40 million investment by the company over the next two years in building a new, state-of-the-art, greenfield manufacturing site.
The majority of the 200 jobs to be created in the next five years will be for skilled technicians and design engineers. A further 200 jobs will be created during the two year construction period of the new facility.
This investment programme has been supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through Enterprise Ireland and will position Combilift to double its current €150 million turnover over the next five years. The company currently employs over 300 people between its current facilities in
Monaghan town and in Clontibret.
Combilift has recently purchased 40 hectares of industrial zoned land on the Monaghan by-pass with plans to invest €40 million in building a purpose-built, 40,000 square meter, greenfield global HQ and manufacturing facility with a devoted Research & Development building and adjoining back office facilities.
Combilift is best known for its wide range of multi-directional forklifts, Aisle-Master articulated forklifts and other innovative material handling solutions such as the Combilift Straddle
Carrier, designed to handle large containers and over-sized loads.
