DACHSER Ireland creates 6000 hazardous pallet spaces at head office facilities in Dublin
The strategic initiative involves the expansion of its chemical storage capacity to cater to the increasing demands of the chemical industry in Ireland. The first phase of this project has seen the addition of 6,000 hazardous pallet spaces made available to the existing infrastructure, providing a robust storage solution for the chemical sector.
Anticipated to conclude towards the end of 2024, the second phase of the project will potentially add a further 3,000 hazardous pallet spaces, bringing the total available spaces to an impressive 9,000. This development underscores DACHSER's dedication to meet customer demands for growth and scalability in the future.
Sales Manager for Ireland, Michael Mulcahy, commented, "The expansion of our chemical storage capacity is a direct response to the changing dynamics in the post-Brexit era. We are committed to providing our customers with the space and solutions they need to navigate the evolving landscape of the chemical industry in Ireland."
Situated on an expansive eight acre Upper Tier COMAH site in Rathcoole, DACHSER Ireland operates a total of 8 warehouse units, each tailored to specific storage functions. These units accommodate diverse needs such as Class 3 flammable goods, Class 2 gas cylinders and caged aerosols and temperature controlled storage.
