The company looked at possible sites in Shannon, Cork and Dublin before opting for Mitchelstown due to its central location and accessibility to the major road networks.
Employment numbers initially are expected to be small, probably in single digit figures, but the firm, which is to invest in the region of half a million euro in the local project, has an impressive track record for expansion at its centres throughout Europe.
Speaking to The Avondhu this week, John O’Brien, the director of their Irish operation, said, “We decided to come to Mitchelstown because of its central location and also due to the support and cooperation that we got from the promoters of the development at Coolnanave. They have been very good to us.”
The European managing director of Temati, Frank Scheeder, will perform the official opening of the plant in Mitchelstown at 1pm on this Friday.
Temati was founded in 1962 by Hertel Company to manufacture, promote and sell Foster Products in the Benelux, as well as in a number of non-allocated international countries.
Over the years Temati gradually increased its production-capacity to include most of the Foster thermal and asbestos abatement products, whilst the area of operation expanded to include Germany, Scandinavia and all major East-European countries.
From the start of its operation Temati has supplemented its range with accessory and insulation products, such as technical fabrics, portable 2-component PU-foam units, needled insulating blankets, protective foils and tapes, corrosion prevention products.
