Aurivo lays foundations at €26m upgraded production facility in Ballagherderreen
A historic occasion for the west and indeed Aurivo took place last week as Aurivo staged one of the region’s largest ever pours of concrete in Co. Roscommon. Aurivo is investing €26m to install a new dryer at the Ballaghaderreen site – a development which will create a modern, state-of-the-art production facility that will boost capacity at the facility by 50%. Once complete, over 50,000 tonnes of milk powders and 15,000 tonnes of butter will be produced there each year.
The move is part of a wider €48m, five-year, capital investment programme by Aurivo, designed to enable innovative new product development and further position the organisation to meet global demand and anticipated market growth.
Commenting on the announcement, Aaron Forde, CEO of Aurivo said: “With a strong commitment to both our suppliers and our customers, not only will these enhanced facilities in Ballaghderreen assist us in our ongoing support for them, but it will mean the organisation is better placed to access new international markets. We have set a strategic target to grow by 25% from a 400m litre per year milk business to a 500m one by 2022. This development will help us to realise that ambition.”
Aurivo representatives were joined by a local farmer and building contractors to watch history being made, as the company lays the foundations for a €26m upgrade of its Dairy Ingredients facility in Ballaghaderren, Co. Roscommon.
