The ASG Group Supporting Shay Murtagh Expansion into UK
Shay Murtagh Precast announced a major expansion last week with the creation of 41 jobs for their specialist precast capability. Speaking at the announcement Ciaran Murtagh, managing director of Shay Murtagh said: “The tunnel infrastructure sector has been a key area of focus for our company over the past number of years and we are delighted to be in a position today where we have created 41 new jobs and a significant new growth initiative.”
“We have invested a lot of energy in a strategic and focused expansion into the UK infrastructure market. The solid expansion plan has provided a platform for growth,” said Murtagh.
Thanking Enterprise Ireland and The ASG Group for their support over the past number of years, Ciaran highlighted the importance of the international sales development support provided by The ASG Group as a key accelerator of sales success to date.
Speaking at the announcement Jobs Minister Richard Bruton said export-focused companies like Shay Murtagh were central to the Government’s jobs and growth strategy.
“Manufacturing must be a particular focus as we seek to create the jobs we need, and last week we announced the establishment of a manufacturing development forum which will report back within six months on specific measures which we can take to develop this sector,” said Bruton.
