Agency oversees opening of new McArdle Skeath facility in Dublin

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar cuts ribbon on state-of-the-art new €20 million McArdle Skeath facility as Cullen Communications welcomes another new client.

Last month, we were delighted to work with McArdle Skeath – one of Ireland’s foremost supply chain management providers – on the opening of the company’s impressive new storage facility in Hollystown, north County Dublin.

It’s the first time we’ve worked with McArdle Skeath, which approached us in May to inquire about PR support for the grand opening.

The new warehouse represents a €20 million investment by McArdle Skeath and is strategically positioned to service the nutritional and bio-tech sectors. The company, 50 years in business this year, has added the Hollystown facility to its existing headquarters in Inniskeen, Dundalk.

Attending the opening was none other than Taoiseach (Prime Minister) Leo Varadkar, who congratulated McArdle Skeath and welcomed them to their new home. (Varadkar is the local representative for Dublin West.)

“I know McArdle Skeath pride themselves on exceeding the highest standards, and I have no doubt they will take the same approach to success with this new facility,” he said. “I wish all the staff and management the very best of luck.”

The event was also attended by Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation, Heather Humphreys TD.

Our contribution to the event included both media relations and event management, with excellent coverage giving our new client the best possible start. Coverage included more than 40 individual clippings in national (RTE, Irish Examiner) and specialist (Silicon Republic, ShelfLife) publications as well as three broadcast interviews including one on national station RTE 2FM.

We wish McArdle Skeath every success in their new facility and look forward to working with them again in the future.
