Nolan Transport opens new €12m logistics facility in Wexford
Nolan Transport has invested €12 million in the opening of a warehousing and logistics facility in Co Wexford.
With its main hub already operating out of New Ross, this is its second Wexford-based facility.
The new 150,000 cubic metres high bay warehouse facility is the first of five planned warehouses by the firm over the next number of years.
Located on a 35-acre site just off of the Rosslare road in county Wexford, the new facility will be operated by Nolan Warehousing & Logistics.
The warehouse has a specialist wing for bioscience, clean room facilities and a containment wing.
It will be powered via solar roof panels coupled with in-built smart controls for energy.
The company is also seeking options to add on railway connections and on-site wind turbines in the coming years.
An initial 30 jobs are set to be created by the opening of this new facility.
Nolan Transport was founded in 1963 by the late Jimmy and Joan Nolan. The company started 60 years ago with a single truck and now has over 2,000 trailers and 700 trucks.
