Must read

Revive Active has unveiled its second manufacturing facility in Mullingar, Westmeath.

The new 10,000 sq. ft facility was officially opened by The Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment, Mr Peter Burke T.D. on Monday.

The additional 10,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing and warehousing space is part of the company’s international expansion, out of which they will service customers in the Middle East, Europe and Africa, amongst others.

With the second site now operational, Revive Active has created over 40 jobs for the local area and has 75 employees nationwide.

Revive Active say that Enterprise Ireland has been fundamental to the success story having provided mentoring and financial support from the initial set up in the early days.

The funding has ensured growth within the Irish and International markets and was pivotal prior to Brexit when founder Daithi ‘O Connor decided to move production from an outsourced facility in the UK to Mullingar.

 The first plant was opened in 2018 and was also attended by Minister Burke.

Recently, Revive Active internationally launched Celerio Group in Portugal, which will see the full product range on the shelves of a health store group throughout the country.

Further expansion will come through Nordics and UAE markets in 2024 with European growth forecast in 2025, the supplements supplier says.

“Our goal at that time was to provide employment to 10 people in the locality and it is a very proud moment for the entire company to see growth over the last five years that has seen our team grow to 40 people.”
