Renatus Comment: ALS Identify is viewing this move as an opportunity to generate synergies with a company that it has been working with for almost 20 years. The business has ambitious growth targets and has already purchased a building at Plato Business Park in Mulhuddart to accommodate this growth. The additional workshop space will enable larger and more complex labelling, identification and conveyor systems to be developed and further R&D, according to MD Pat Phibbs. ALS is also planning to recruit additional engineers which will enable it to expand its client base in the pharma and medical devices, food and drink, agri, personal care, and cosmetics sectors.
