Niall Mulleady, operating manager for Mulleadys said of the appointment, ‘Mulleadys are delighted to have secured the long-term service contract for all Center Parcs Longford Forest’s environmental services.
As a long-established Longford firm, we are delighted that Center Parcs has chosen another local company employing local people as a key supplier, showing confidence in the Longford business community as promised from the onset of this project.
We believe that our reputation of being excellent service providers over 25 years was a critical factor in Center Parcs awarding us the contract and we look forward to working closely with the Center Parcs Longford Forest team into the future”.
Samantha Steed, assistant category manager for Center Parcs said, ‘we are delighted to be working with another local business here in county Longford. We take our impact on the environment extremely seriously and believe that Mulleadys can help us manage our waste in the most sustainable way.’
