Zeus to open logistics facility, creates 40 new jobs

Irish packaging company Zeus will open a 70,000-square-foot logistics facility in Watergrasshill, Cork, creating 40 new roles over the next 18 months. Founded in 1998, Zeus provides food packaging products – such as coffee cups, salad containers, deli trays, cutlery, fast food supplies and more – to the retail sector. The new site is part of Zeus' national logistics and distribution strategy, with four key facilities to be positioned throughout Ireland. With over 12,000 pallet space, Zeus said that the Watergrasshill facility has 12 million clear internal eaves, five dock levellers, a voice-controlled 'Warehouse Management System', and will integrate four other logistics centres withing Limerick and Dublin. In addition, the new positions will be created in the areas of logistics, distribution, commercial and administration. Adrian Lannon, chief operations officer of Zeus, said: “As Zeus has expanded organically through strategic acquisition, we now need to future-proof our operational capacity and capability in line with both customer expectation and company growth. Today’s announcement forms part of a wider strategy to enhance service levels throughout Ireland while increasing operational efficiencies." He continued: “This new modern facility will allow optimised placement of stocks around the country, bringing products closer to our customers. We also have plans for further investment in our Limerick operations, consolidating our JJ O’Toole, Limerick Packaging and Zeus Limerick business operations.” Brian O’Sullivan, founder of Zeus, commented: “This will greatly improve our capability within the region, create new jobs, deliver a better work-life balance for our colleagues and, importantly, deliver greater service options to our customers”. The facility is set to be operational by next month.
