100 new jobs for Cork with Kings Laundry

Kings Laundry has announced the creation of 100 new jobs at its Cork facility. The company also has 80 seasonal jobs available in Cork and Dublin for the coming summer period.

Kings Laundry is a leading supplier of linen and laundry services to the hospitality sector. The company has announced an investment of a further €2m in its new state-of-the-art facility in Little Island in Cork which opened in June 2016 following a €12m investment and creation of 40 jobs at that time.

These new addditional permanent positions will bring its total workforce to over 550.

Specifically designed and built by Jensen with Kings Laundry, the Cork operation is the most environmentally friendly in Europe. Kings Laundry invests €5m each year in new linen making them the highest purchasers of linen in Ireland. The company sources its raw materials in Egypt, Pakistan and Turkey, ensuring consistency in the quality of its products.

Kings Laundry first established the business in 2000 when it opened its first small operation. It moved to its current Dublin location in Tallaght in 2005 and has continued to see double digit growth since.

Speaking at today's announcement, Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government, Simon Coveney said, "The Cork facility is very impressive, particularly in relation to the advances in its energy efficiencies and minimizing its environmental impact. It’s also great news on the jobs front with the addition of 100 new positions in Cork."

He added, "It’s a very positive reflection of the hospitality sector, with the IHF noting increases in both overseas and domestic business. The outlook for this year is for continued strong growth and the recent announcements at Cork Airport will help drive tourism in the region."
