Mayo: an ideal location for home grown success stories

Indigenous

Home grown success

“With GMIT and NUI Galway in such close proximity education and further education is very accessible for growing families or further training for employees”

Mayo has a strong indigenous enterprise sector with Irish businesses based here competing on a global stage. Companies such as

  •        technical work-wear specialist Portwest
  •        leading international manufacturer of specialist agricultural farm machinery McHale and
  •        textiles designer Foxford Woollen Mills

export high quality goods and services around the world. The indigenous sector relies on Mayo’s high quality transport network and the ease of distribution and access to markets this facilitates.

According to a survey carried out by Mayo County Council, more than 75% of companies based in Mayo predict their business will grow over the next 12 months.

The indigenous manufacturing industry here spans food, drink, med-tech, engineering and agricultural products and is the primary motor of growth in Mayo’s economy.

This is enabled by the infrastructure in Mayo such as:

“The high quality infrastructure, including broadband and water services, in Castlebar enables KOG Logistics to operate a high quality service in the County.”
