Waste management company Re-Gen Waste has announced a £2million expansion of its paper recycling lines at its Newry headquarters.

There will be 30 new jobs during the construction phase and 12 full time positions after the expansion, taking the total workforce up to 205.

The announcement is part of a £9million investment over the next three years.

Re-gen Waste managing director, Joseph Doherty, said: “We are making a statement of intent about our commitment to our employees and aspirations for the future.

“The plant upgrade will enable us to achieve a much improved performance, giving us a far stronger and more competitive position in the global paper market.”

Doherty hopes the investment will allow Re-Gen Waste to offer China the higher grades of paper it demands after its recent announcement to the World Trade Organisation.

He said: “Our in-house R&D department, which includes a stand-alone engineering and fabrication team, allows us to make new machinery and operational efficiencies so we can respond immediately to market demands and are better equipped to defend ourselves against the challenges from large customers altering their specifications.”
