Athlone company chief praises benefits of area as business location

The general manager of a market research company has said Athlone is a good choice for a business base.

The NPD Group’s Dermot Ainsworth’s comments come as they celebrate ten years in the region.

Mr Ainsworth has praised the area as a good base for the company and spoke about the many benefits of setting up shop there.

Some of the benefits mentioned include a large catchment area and a better commute to work, as well as close proximity to amenities and employees’ homes.

Speaking to Shannonside FM, Mr Ainsworth says the advantage of a base in the midlands has become more apparent over the years.
