Global logistics company Rhenus is doubling the size of its Galway City facilities in Parkmore.

The German company is building a multi-client warehouse at a new site in Parkmore, that will bring the total size of its Galway facilities to 20,000m².

Mayor of Galway Cllr Clodagh Higgins attended a sod turning on the project along with representatives of the company and IDA Ireland.

David Williams, CEO Rhenus Road, Region North Europe, said that the new facility “will allow Rhenus to unlock new opportunities and partner with businesses to provide world-class logistics and supply chain solutions.”

“We are excited to further build and leverage the knowledge of our Rhenus Ireland team.”

The Rhenus Group logistics company employs some 37,500 people globally, and has an annual turnover of €7 billion, providing transportation, warehousing, and customs clearance services.

The new 10,000m² Galway facility has already commenced construction, and is expected to be operational in the fourth quarter of 2023.

Declan Sinnott, Managing Director of Rhenus Ireland added, “The opening of this new site builds on the strong customer relationships built by SSL management and staff over 20 years.”

“This new facility is part of our 2022-2027 development plan, providing for an increase in our logistics capacity for existing and new customers on the island of Ireland.”

IDA Ireland’s Head of Regional Business Development, Ray O’Connor said that the expansion is a vote of confidence in Rhenus’ Irish operations.
