Family engineering business, McAree Engineering Ltd in Co Monaghan, has announced a €5m expansion and creation of 30 jobs in the next two years.

Sheet metal fabricators and silo manufacturers McAree Engineering in Ballinode, Co Monaghan, is pumping €5m in to a new purpose-built factory unit. The company made the announcement on Thursday at the North East Lean Network open day in its Ballinode factory.

It is building a 40,000 sqft factory unit with 8,000m2 yard space in order to double capacity to manufacture their bulk storage silos. The facility is expected to be opened in October this year.

“Demand for our V-Mac silos is at an all-time high and this purpose-built factory will allow us to increase our productivity and reduce lead times to the growing number of customers we have in Britain and Ireland,” Eamon McMeel, V-Mac technical sales manager said.

It is also investing in a Trumpf laser to increase metal processing capacity to 230t/week, this will be commissioned in mid-July.

Recruitment has started for the 30 extra staff the investment will allow for, from Mechanical Design Engineers to Sheet Metal Fabricators. The business currently employs 120 people across two factories in North Monaghan.

“I am absolutely delighted to congratulate McAree Engineering on this wonderful announcement for Monaghan and the region,” Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation Heather Humphreys said.
