HID has announced the opening of its new Logistics Centre in Shannon, Ireland. The new facility is HID’s second largest Logistics Centre, supporting 55 countries across Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
The occasion was marked with an official ribbon-cutting and a visit from local government and business leaders, as well as HID’s operations leadership team. The new 4,157 m/sq Logistics Centre is double the size of HID’s previous facility and employs 60 people with a goal of expanding headcount in the years to come.
“The new Logistic Centre is strategic in sustaining the global growth HID has experienced, and it demonstrates our commitment to fostering innovation and product availability across the region,” said Josh Freeman, HID’s Senior Vice President and Head of Operations.
Minister of State for Trade Promotion, Digital and Company Regulation, Dara Calleary said: “Congratulations to HID on the opening of their new Logistic Centre in Shannon. Since 2006, HID’s growth and expansion here in Ireland is truly a great success story, and the new centre will allow for an even better service to their European customers. I’m delighted that HID has chosen Shannon and the mid-west region for this new expansion, and welcome all growth opportunities, especially in regional areas. Shannon is thriving in the technology space and having a global leader such as HID open in the area is a very welcome addition. I wish all the team the best with this new expansion and continued success.”
