Thu, Oct 22, 2020

An air of employment positivity descended upon Athlone on Friday afternoon with a formal announcement by DPD Ireland of plans to create 150 jobs at their state-of-the-art headquarter base in the town.

DPD Ireland, which is the country’s largest parcel delivery company, is also investing €1 million in its automation and routing systems within the central hub facility.

The company, as the year concludes, will additionally employ 550 drivers and operational personnel to meet the incessant demand created by consumers who are increasingly utilising online purchasing in the presence of Covid-19.
