Picture of the Week: Official Opening of Moffett Automated Storage HQ in Clontibret, Monaghan


Wednesday 17th August 2022: Pictured performing the Official Opening of Moffett Automated Storage (AS) Headquarters at Listroar, Clontibret, County Monaghan is An Tánaiste Leo Varadkar TD together with Sam Moffett MD,  Moffett AS; Minister Heather Humphreys TD; Joonas Ryynänen, CTO Moffett AS; Robert Moffett and representatives from Enterprise Ireland, Leader and Moffett AS management. Thirty additional new jobs were announced on the day covering technical, sales and aftermarket areas in Ireland and abroad.

Moffett Automated Storage specialises in auto storage/retrieval systems, offering a turnkey solution for all warehouse palletised storage needs. Moffett (AS) has a great history in manufacturing with over 70 years of family experience though different industries such as the Moffett Mounty truck mounted forklift and Combilift.

For the Moffett family the occasion was a significant milestone as three generations later, and with seven decades of engineering excellence and industry-leading expertise, Moffett Automated Storage continues to pioneer innovation in the design and implementation of storage and material handling solutions with the development of the Moffett AS/R Taxi System.

Sam Moffett’s grandfather Cecil Moffett established an agricultural machinery manufacturing facility next door to this site in 1945.

In his address to the gathering Sam thanked all involved in bringing this day to fruition. The vision created in 2017 has turned to reality. He stated: “Customers across a range of sectors place their trust in us thanks to our automated approach to material handling; transforming operations, processes and productivity levels on an industrial scale. We specialise in High Density Automated Pallet Storage Systems for large storage areas and distribution centres. We design, manufacture and install warehouses for maximum storage and throughput.”

He concluded with business overview and a factory tour of the newly constructed advanced technology headquarters.

Full report and pictures will feature in the next edition of Handling Network magazine.
