The County Armagh headquartered tile manufacturer, Armatile, has announced plans to create 20 new jobs and invest £3m in a new luxury showroom and design hub in Dublin.
Armatile, a family owned business that employs around 90 people across three locations at Armagh, Belfast and Newry, is set to open the facility at Baldoyle, North Dublin in Spring 2020.
Ireland has been an important market for Armatile for many years, and it is anticipated that the new centre will provide an easy to access location where architects, interior designers, project contractors and installers and product specifiers can meet experts and see products first-hand.
Retail Director, Chris McCann said the company’s vision is to make the new showroom amongst the best in Europe in terms of design and visitor experience: “This new facility will provide tangible evidence of our long-term confidence in the Irish marketplace. We have supplied Armatile products to many projects across Ireland such as Mazda Ireland, Peter Mark Salons and the Hillgrove Hotel in Monaghan, to name a few. A Dublin expansion has been in our plans for a number of years and finally we have found a property with a good location, transport infrastructure and the right size.
“We have developed a reputation as one of the leading suppliers for architectural and interior design tiling solutions throughout Ireland and UK. We are able to design and manufacture bespoke and repeat mosaics, patterns, features and fabricated products – all made to a client’s preference in our Armagh manufacturing facility. Our bespoke offering is something that will truly differentiate us in the Irish market.”
