Finning Invest In New State Of The Art Dublin Branch


Caterpillar dealer Finning UK and Ireland has shown its commitment to the Irish market, by acquiring a new six-acre, purpose built site at the Aerodrome Business Park in Rathcoole. The investment will see Finning relocate its operation from its existing site in Greenogue to the new facility in spring 2014.

The premises was custom built by a previous plant and equipment dealer and presents the ideal space for Finning to house and grow its Irish operations. It features two-storey offices, a showroom, a parts warehouse and two larger workshops, including sixteen work bays, which will give customers quicker repair turnaround times.

The move will also see Finning Power Systems based onsite, creating further opportunities for customers to benefit from a variety of services offered by Finning. Furthermore, the opening of the headquarters will generate additional opportunities of employment in the area.

Gary Meggarrell, Finning Ireland General Manager, said: “Since the dealership in Ireland transitioned to Finning in 2010, it has been key to our strategic direction to secure the right facility to run our operations efficiently and profitably for the long term. Dublin is a key strategic location for us given the proximity to some of our key customers operating in the mineral extraction, construction, marine and data centre segments.

“The facility will become an important part of the Finning infrastructure, with ample room for expansion and strengthens our commitment to our employees and customers. Operations will continue in our current facility at Greenogue until quarter two of 2014, when we hope to be fully operational in the new facility.”

Finning Ireland also has branches in Lisburn, County Antrim and Cork City.
