A FOOD manufacturer with a base in Ashbourne has announced a £6million investment in a new training and skills development initiative.
Bosses at Moy Park, which has a factory in the Airfield Industrial Estate, say their latest programme of investments will deliver leadership and management training, skills development in teamwork, problem solving and structured approaches to improvement.
The scheme, they say, will also kick start initiatives to support further advances in innovation, service, productivity and the application of IT systems.
So far nearly £1.5million in support has been pledged from Invest Northern Ireland, where its head quarters are based, as part of its Skills Growth Programme.
Nigel Dunlop, Moy Park Chief Executive said: “Through this significant investment in training, we aim to improve competitiveness and profitability and deliver more innovation through high performing people and great teamwork so that we can continue to grow in the UK and international markets.
“Our objective is to be the most effective, efficient and safe organisation of our kind in Europe through the skills and commitment of everyone in Moy Park. Invest NI’s support has been vital in enabling us to take forward this ambitious training programme.”
