Kilsaran launch new Merrion Paving Range following €11m investment in new Paving Manufacturing Plant.
Kilsaran have recently commissioned a new state of the art hermetic press paving plant at its paving and walling manufacturing facility in Dunboyne Co. Meath. One of the first new products to come off the new press is the contemporary Merrion Paving range. This new range will be available to all Kilsaran customers throughout Ireland and the UK. This major investment has secured 200 jobs on the Dunboyne site and added another 30 jobs directly.
Merrion’s clean edges and smooth texture mirror the latest design trends helping customers achieve a contemporary look to their outdoor space. All flags are 40mm in depth for greater ease of application, offering a modern alternative to porcelain and natural stone.
Hermetic Press are leaders in Paving manufacturing technology producing 1,500 tonnes of pressing power and utilising wet colour mixes will guarantee a finished product that is second to none. Innovation in packaging has eliminated surface scratching with face to face and base to base packing of flags along with an intertwined roping system to help the concrete breathe.
Adding to an extensive list of advantages of concrete paving over natural stone, the new Merrion Range is manufactured with a robust, high-performance surface layer improving strength, colour retention and slip/skid resistance. The real benefits of these new paving ranges are the reduced installation time, factory pre-sealed option that is readily available and cost-saving that is achievable over choosing natural stone or granite.
“There has been a growing appetite from our customers in recent years for paving products that are durable, easy to install, cost-effective and easy to maintain. This is where our new Merrion Range comes in, the range is contemporary and offers a real alternative to porcelain or natural stone. We are excited about the new hermetic press and are currently working on an exciting new range of paving that will come to market in the coming months. With the recent pandemic, there is a global shortage of availability of imported paving materials, now we can offer both quality and supply to our local markets” Roy McKeown, Director of Paving & Walling, Kilsaran International.
