Sysco Plans Expansion
Sysco Ireland has revealed plans to double the size of its Northern Ireland operation within five years as part of an ambitious growth strategy.
To support this strategy, Sysco is investing £23m in the proposed development of a state of the art distribution facility at Nutt’s Corner, County Antrim. Once completed, the new facility is expected to create 90 additional jobs, taking Sysco’s workforce in Northern Ireland to 230.
The company offers a range of over 10,000 food products with 70% sourced locally across the island of Ireland, with guaranteed next day delivery.
Commenting on the plans Mark Lee, CEO of Sysco Ireland, said:
"The project forms part of Sysco’s wider growth strategy, which with continued investment in our offering, innovation and people, has helped to establish the business as the leading foodservice provider on the island of Ireland. The investment in the new facility, which is subject to planning approval, has been driven by strong customer demand in Northern Ireland."
