Aldi Ireland announced it has agreed a new 15-year lease to move its 120-strong Buying and Marketing teams to a state-of-the-art corporate office at Birch House, Millennium Park, Naas, Co. Kildare, in order to meet the needs of its expanding Irish sourcing operation and workforce.

The move reflects Aldi’s significant expansion over the past five years, which has seen its workforce grow to over 4,000 staff, supporting 142 Irish stores.

The space is currently being refitted and will be ready to occupy from early 2021 by Aldi’s Irish National Buying and Marketing teams. Continued investment in sourcing award winning Irish products has led to an expansion in Aldi’s team, which has grown from four staff in 2004. Aldi now works with over 200 Irish food and drink producers and will sell over €750 million worth of Irish goods this year.

The 41,000 ft² office space will be fitted with facilities to the highest environmental, technological and public health standards. It will feature Aldi’s ‘Taste Kitchen’, a state-of-the-art development kitchen where Aldi’s Buying team will be able to create and test new Irish products. It will also allow for greater engagement, collaboration and creativity within teams to work to create the innovative products and marketing campaigns that Aldi is known for.

The office space at Millennium Park and the excellent facilities nearby, was chosen due to its proximity to Aldi’s existing regional warehousing and distribution centre in Naas and to the M7, allowing for greater flexibility for staff, good transport links, as well as to attract talent wishing to work outside Dublin city centre. Aldi is currently recruiting at all levels of its business.

Niall O’Connor, Group Managing Director, Aldi Ireland said: “This is a very exciting move for all at Aldi and reflectsour long-term commitment to investment and expansion in Ireland. The Buying and Marketing teams serve our entire operation around the country and are the driving forces behind our supplier relationships, our amazing products and of course our dynamic Marketing and Communications campaigns. This new facility will position us strongly to maintain our leading position and for further growth in the years ahead. They will also help us attract the brightest and most creative minds to join our winning team.”
