The opening of NUA Manufacturing in Rathnapish, Co Carlow is a timber frame and steel frame manufacturing facility.
According to Glenveagh Properties, the new facility will increase its overall delivery capability and accelerate the supply of new homes.
Minister for Housing Darragh O’Brien who visited the new facility, said:
“The old Braun factory was laying vacant for at least 10 years, so it's great to actually see existing buildings like that being used as a big investment,” he said.
“The state-of-the-art modern methods of construction, offsite construction of homes, will create 200 jobs and obviously assist us in continuing to ramp up the delivery of housing across the country.
“Last year, there was a very significant increase in 30,000 new homes. We will exceed that this year, as well delivering more social and affordable homes than in decades.”
“It's a fantastic facility and production is starting there of really top-quality homes built at the highest of specification.”
