Oakland International to expand southern Ireland workforce

Recruits1Due to organic growth of existing customer business and an increase in new business, Oakland International, has again expanded its workforce at its southern Ireland depot in Ashbourne Co. Meath.

An established consolidation and distribution operator, with depots in both the UK and Ireland, Oakland’s new recruits, Ciara Meehan, as Stock Controller, will take charge of in-house computer systems to support the firm’s Irish warehouse operations, whilst Declan Russell as Warehouse Operative, will join Oakland’s ever expanding Irish warehouse team.

A specialist in third party supply chain warehousing and logistics, the firm conducts chilled distribution schemes for UK, Irish and European mainline retailers, servicing many on a daily basis. Supply chain functions encompass warehousing, picking and distribution for ambient, chilled and frozen products, with Oakland acknowledged as operating a highly successful and unique distressed load management service within its industry sector.

General Manager Richard Hill stated: “Oakland International is delighted to be maintaining positive growth momentum in today’s current economic climate. Both Ciara and Declan are top calibre people who have already brought a great deal to the organisation. I am delighted to welcome them to the team.”

Oakland’s capacity to grow lies in its ability to deliver significant opportunities within a service driven Irish retail market, whilst maintaining the offer of flexible supply chain solutions, appealing to both UK and Irish exporters; with Ireland now perceived as the ‘local’ choice by the UK, Oakland is focused on strategic business development aimed at supporting Irish manufacturers and producers wishing to maximise new markets in the UK whilst also offering a single source solution for producers supplying the retailers, wholesalers and foodservice outlets throughout Ireland.
