A new state-of-the-art Business Enterprise Centre was officially opened in Glenties on Monday afternoon.
The Glenties enterprise centre is on a 7,500 sq ft site leased from Donegal County Council and includes six industrial units, three of which have a mezzanine, as well as an administration and training facility of 1,500 sq ft.
Minister for Education and Skills Joe McHugh was on site to officially open the new Business Centre.
Speaking at the launch, McHugh said the site would be ‘big asset for the region’.
“The project has been backed over the last number of years by Enterprise Ireland and the International Fund for Ireland and it was €200,000 Government funding as a Rural Economic Development Zone that brought it to where it is today,” McHugh said.
“And it is fitting that it is opening as we mark Enterprise Week 2019.”
The project was granted €200,000 from the Department of Community and Rural Development in order to complete the project.
The Donegal TD added: “I also want to thank Donegal County Enterprise Fund which took responsibility for the completion and management of the Enterprise Centre.
“Huge effort has gone into getting the enterprise centre to where it is today with significant construction work completed on the units, doors, decoration, street lights, drainage and landscaping and bringing the whole place up to a high standard.
“It is great to see local business here already and I understand some local businesses are interested in taking up space in the new facility.
“I look forward to seeing all the units becoming home to Donegal firms and keeping busy.”
