Council welcomes Kellogg’s decision to stay in Fingal

Fingal County Council has welcomed the decision of US food company Kellogg to remain in Fingal following today’s announcement that it is moving its Dublin-based European and Irish offices to Dublin Airport Central.

The company, which employs over 220 people, has taken 3,600 square metres of office space in one of the two new headquarters style offices currently under construction at Dublin Airport. Kellogg, who are currently based in Swords, had looked at locations in other parts of the Dublin region but ultimately decided to remain in Fingal where they have been situated for the past 10 years. “Kellogg’s decision to remain in Fingal is a major boost for the county,” said the Chief Executive of Fingal County Council, Paul Reid. “They looked at all the options opened to them and decided that Fingal offered them a location which is pro-business, is well connected and offers their staff a good place to work and live. “The Metro Economic Corridor is designed to stimulate investment in Fingal and already this month we have seen construction commence on MSD’s new biotech facility in Swords which is expected to create 350 new jobs,” said Mr Reid. The Mayor of Fingal, Cllr Anthony Lavin, said: ““ESB International has already chosen Dublin Airport Central and Fingal for its new headquarters and I am confident that more companies will look at following the lead of ESB International, Kellogg and all the other top companies and industry leaders already based in Fingal.”
