Healthcare Brand Increases Clonmel Investment with New €3 Million Warehouse Facility

Yesterday, April 8th, both the Mayor of Clonmel Borough District, Cllr Richie Molloy, and Clonmel Healthcare, a popular consumer health brand, announced the completion of the construction of a brand new €3 million warehouse facility in Clonmel.

The 1,650 square metre build, which officially opened its doors today comes after a previous extension of 1,800 square metres in 2017 and will see an increase in the production potential of STADA AG pharmaceutical products through this additional distribution capacity for specialised medical products supplied to pharmacists and medical professionals across Ireland.

The construction involved an extensive renovation and extension of a building that was over 50 years old. Previously, the warehouse capacity was 3,500 pallets, yet was responsible for moving 22 million prescription drugs and over-the-counter products annually – the single largest distribution of pharmaceutical products in Ireland in 2023 by volume.

With the opening of the new, larger facility, located on Waterford Road, Clonmel Healthcare expects to store 6,000 pallets of products at any one time which is a huge increase on last year, along with ensuring a much more efficient storage and distribution process.

“We are delighted to see this additional investment from Clonmel Healthcare at its HQ in Clonmel. Clonmel Healthcare has been a significant part of our vibrant commercial hub in Clonmel for over 50 years,” commented Mayor, Cllr Richie Molloy.

Jim Hanlon, CEO of Clonmel Healthcare said of the new warehouse “The consumer demand for Clonmel Healthcare products has been growing incrementally year on year, so it was time we invested in the re-sizing of our facility, in addition to our commercial office with Sales & Marketing functions in Dublin, in order to meet increased customer demands.”

Hanlon continued “This is a reflection of the drivers of our business over the last number of years and a project that will provide more growth opportunities in line with our purpose of Caring for Patient’s Health as a Trusted Partner”.

The construction was completed by Mulcahy Construction, Clonmel, with the design and project management work carried out by local architect Kenneth Hennessy of Ailtiri Architects. The entire process saw an investment of €3 million and took 10 months to complete.
