Comar has announced multi-million euro expansion plans for its Ireland-based affiliate – Automatic Plastics Limited (APL) located in Tinahely.

The initiative is expected to result in the creation of approximately 80 new jobs over the next 3 years.

The project is supported by the Irish Government through IDA Ireland.
