Glen Dimplex, Irish producer of HVAC equipment, will open a new facility in North Wales to manufacture medical and commercial refrigeration units. The Irish company is investing in a 45,000 square foot industrial unit at Buckley. The plant will create 50 new jobs.
The Glen Dimplex investment is being supported by business finance from the Welsh government. Recruiting for the new jobs has already begun and will be phased in over the coming year.
The company is a world leader in electric heating appliances and also sells domestic appliances, cooling, ventilation, and renewable energy solutions worldwide.
Mark Abbott is Managing Director of Glen Dimplex Professional Appliances and its leading medical refrigeration brand, Lec Medical. "As well as enabling us to consolidate our manufacturing base in the UK, this new facility will enable us to capitalize on new and lucrative business opportunities," Abbott said. "Our new production facility also places us right at the heart of a manufacturing hub, enabling us to better serve our UK and International client base.
The new Welsh facility will form part of the company’s Professional appliances division, which supplies refrigeration units for hospitals, pharmacies and laboratories.
The company is headquartered in Ireland and sells products under several brand names, including Dimplex, Stoves, New World, Belling, LEC, Redring Xpelair, Goblin, and Roberts Radio. The company, founded in 1973, has annual turnover of EUR 1.5 billion and has 10,000 employees working at its operations in North America, Germany, Holland, Japan, Poland, Belgium, France, China, Australia, and Scandinavia.
