However, a start-up company called Off-Site Construction has leased 25,000 square feet of the premises and it’s set to open in the new year.

The company will initially produce bathroom pods for hotels, but plans to expand and lease more of the Cameron plant after a year.

It has already recruited its production management and design and administration personnel and has advertised for tradesmen, such as plumbers, electricians, tilers and general operatives.

Jim McGovern, who is based in Castlebellingham in Co Longford, is the managing director of Off-Site Construction.

Mr McGovern carried out a three-month feasibility study of the Cameron site before deciding to settle there.
