Alltech has opened its newly-extended European headquarters at the site of its facility in Dunboyne, Co. Meath.
President and founder of Alltech, Dr Pearse Lyons, was joined at the official ribbon cutting by former EU Commissioner, David Byrne and Dr Deirdre Lyons, co-founder of Alltech. The expansion comes in response to Alltech’s growing presence in Europe, a region which has recently become number one for Alltech’s sales globally. The facility in Dunboyne, now employing 102 people, has trebled in size and capacity from 1,200m2 to 3,600m2. Alltech has also upgraded its existing research laboratories, allowing much of the molecular research into animal health to take place at the site. Some of the other departments based at the facility are European marketing, regulatory, sales, finance, customer service and Alltech’s quality control department. Alltech’s sponsorship of the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games 2014 in Normandy will be activated from the facility, as well as the Alltech Career Development Program.
