Rhenus Ireland opens new Dublin facility

Rhenus Ireland has confirmed the opening of a brand-new Dublin facility. Strategically located at the centre of all main motorways into and out of Dublin, 11 kilometres from Dublin airport and 22 kilometres from the city’s port, the new site will significantly boost Rhenus Ireland’s storage capacity.

The opening was marked by an open day on 27 March, with key clients, longstanding suppliers, and council representation in attendance. Rhenus provided its clients and partners with an exclusive glimpse of the cutting-edge warehouse and offices. Extending to an impressive 11,150 square metres, the expansion is a significant milestone for Rhenus Ireland.

Fitted to the LEED gold standard, the new site features 12 dock levellers, two grade-level doors, and a 17-metre clear internal height supported by a warehouse roof and an in-rack sprinkler system. Additionally, the new facility boasts a dedicated ambient chamber, where temperature is mapped and monitored to pharmaceutical standards. It will be operated by 65 experienced staff members.

The move follows Rhenus Ireland’s announcement earlier this year confirming the doubling in capacity of the Parkmore campus in Galway to an impressive 20,000 square metres.

Declan Sinnott, Managing Director of Rhenus Ireland, said: “I am pleased to confirm the opening of our new Dublin facility, designed to enhance our service offerings and extend the services we deliver to our customers across avariousindustries.
