The Irish company Tricel took the decision to expand its operations in France this year, and this decision appears to be paying off as the company’s smooth transition has seen Tricel land an award for Best Irish Company in France.
The award was bestowed by the Franco-Irish Chamber of Commerce and Network Ireland who awarded the prize to Tricel last November, during the Business Awards in Dublin.
Tricel France belongs to the KMG group (Killarney Manufacturing Group), and is well-positioned in the French market for personal sanitation. The company’s main French production sites are in particular its micro-treatment plants in Naintré, between Poitiers and Chatellerault.
Robbie Larkin, the CFO of KMG, received the award on behalf of Tricel and took the opportunity to comment on the award, saying:
“We are delighted to be named ‘Best Irish business in France” for our subsidiary Tricel France. It is a great honour to receive this award from the Franco-Irish Chamber of Commerce. It is recognition of the work and our strong commitment to the French market since 2009. ”
In the wake of this news, Tricel confirmed that it was seeking to create 25 additional posts in France for 2013, which would allow it to confirm its leading position in the market for personal sanitation.
