An Evening with Local Business a success!!!!

On Tuesday 6th Oct, Lake Region Medical New Ross played host to Local Business Owners during an event titled as ‘Evening with Local Business’, organised through the New Ross & District Chamber Of Commerce.


New Ross town in Co. Wexford, Ireland provides employment for 3,194 people.  Lake Region Medical currently provides 25% of those jobs with a current headcount of close to 800.  While Lake Region Medical is based in New Ross since 1994, many visiting locals did not anticipate the scale of Operations or the significance of the New Ross facility on the world stage.


Eddie Kiely, Director of Operations, spoke of the significant contribution that Lake Region Medical make, not just by way of salaries but also to the local community and charities.  In 2015 Lake Region Medical associates raised €30,000 and were thus in a position to donate €15,000 to New Ross River Search & Rescue and €15,000 to Down Syndrome Ireland.

Eddie emphasised that as part of the local community it is proper that Lake Region Medical engage with, and open the site to neighbours in the area.  Eddie also acknowledged the support that Lake Region Medical receives from the New Ross area and that there are many personal links on site, to friends and families.

Ever the opportunist, Eddie also gave a plug for the upcoming Charity run, which aims to raise €10,000 in aid of the Hope Cancer Support Centre.  If interested in participating or donating see more details at

Visitors were given a windows tour of the facility.  Along the way, various members of the Operations team explained how Lake Region Medical products are made and used.  Visitors were also given the chance to thread a core into a coil, giving them true appreciation for the skill-set required by many of the New Ross associates.
