GLANBIA CHEESE FACTORY
Glanbia Mozzarella Cheese Factory, Portlaoise, Co. Laois
O’Reilly Concrete were delighted to be involved in this project for such a well-known, global food corporation. We completed the entire precast frame for the Glanbia world-class Mozzarella Cheese Factory in Portlaoise, Co. Laois.
This €130 million state-of-the-art production plant was the first facility of its kind to be built in Ireland as it produces gluten-free products, leading to significant potential to increase exports to the US and European food markets.
O’Reilly Concrete designed, manufactured and supplied the entire precast frame on this 76-acre development. Precast walls, floors, stairs, columns and beams all feature in this build. Our design team worked tirelessly on perfecting the design of the large bespoke 16m precast columns that were a vital element of this project. We offered these bespoke designs to our client as it was required to ensure the perfect build.
The facility now produces 45,000 tonnes of cheese annually, making it the largest cheese production plant in Europe. The factory has positively impacted Portlaoise and the surrounding region as it offered secure employed and economic growth to the area.
O’Reilly Concrete are extremely proud of this prestigious build and wish Glanbia the best of luck in their future ventures.
