New plant in Ireland inaugurated

September 2006

Myson Controls’ new factory in Newcastle West, built following the devastating fire of July 2005, was officially opened on 7th September 2006 by Micheál Martin, Irish Minister for Enterprise Trade and Employment, and Cyril von Rettig, Chairman of the Rettig Board of Directors. Present at the opening were members of the Rettig family and Board of Directors, customers, suppliers and other distinguished guests. The new factory was opened under the name of Rettig Ireland Ltd, but it continues to trade under the well-known Myson brand. It has the capacity to manufacture 20,000 valves every day and it uses 1,800 tonnes of brass rod, equal to 29 miles of brass rod each year.
Dan Ståhl, MD at Myson Controls comments on the opening and the months of hard work after the fire:“The 7th of September was indeed a great day for us all, celebrating the grand opening of our state of the art factory in Newcastle West. It is an important milestone in the history of Myson Heating Controls Ltd and something we will never forget. Who could believe that after the devastating fire on 10 July 2005 that a year later we would open a new factory of a value of Euro 25 Million  In this case “people make a difference! The difference is how people handle the crises. I have never seen such commitment, loyalty and excellence in how a project was handled and carried out. All our employees in Ireland are the true heroes! This is also why it was decided to rebuild the company in Ireland.”
