Ellsworth Adhesives Europe, a leading distributor of adhesives, specialty chemicals and adhesive dispensing equipment, is pleased to announce the launch of a new Irish division.
Across Europe, Ellsworth Adhesives has increased its footprint by opening branches in the UK, Spain, France, Scandinavia, Poland, and Germany.
Ellsworth Adhesives Ireland joins these regional locations with a new office based in Cork, South West Ireland. This provides a physical entity to allow the distributor to operate within Ireland and potentially mitigate any risk following the departure of the UK from the European Union.
The distributor has already enjoyed success within the territory; however, the addition of this new facility will provide customers with a direct and immediate point of contact. Ellsworth Adhesives Ireland will strive to provide customers with local technical support, product guidance and delivery options, all of which are of heightened importance during these current uncertain times.
Ensuring it is well positioned to serve Ireland, Ellsworth have appointed a dedicated Sales Manager for the region. Ciarán Walsh has over thirty years’ experience working in the laboratory supply, chemical and adhesive industries, with his most recent role as managing director/regional sales director with Dymax Engineering Adhesives Ireland Ltd.
Walsh will report directly to John Henderson, managing director of Ellsworth Adhesives Europe, who comments: “Whilst we already have a strong presence in Ireland, we are confident that the addition of this new division will allow us to attract an even wider customer base in the area.
Walsh’s wealth of knowledge and experience will allow him to align our product range closely with the needs of the Irish market and ensure a smooth transition into this new venture.”
Additionally, a dedicated website for Ireland has been commissioned. The new website adopts the same theme and attributes as the European master site, allowing users to browse the vast product range and request a quote with ease.
Featuring a mobile-friendly design and packed full of product guides and literature, the Ellsworth Adhesives Ireland site is an invaluable resource for both new and experienced customers.
