Planning permission has been given for a Roscommon based firm to significantly expand their operations.
Plastic moulding company Cubis had applied to Roscommon County Council for approval for a new 750 metre-squared manufacturing unit in the IDA Business and Technology park at the Racecourse Road in the town last August.
In their application they claim a new piece of machinery which will be located in the development will help increase capacity at the company by up to 40%
The global firm currently employs over 60 people at its Roscommon site and the local authority granted permission subject to 10 conditions, including monitoring noise levels on a monthly basis for six months after construction is completed and the factory should not generate noise that may be considered a nuisance.
The firm will also be required to pay a development fee of over €15,000 to the Council prior to any work beginning.
