Up to 65 jobs are to be cut from the Coca-Cola Company in Drogheda following a review of its Integrated Services division.

"The company's Integrated Services organisation provides a broad range of support services globally, including for finance, procurement, human resources and a number of other areas,” the spokesperson said.

"As we move to the next generation of services, we’re looking for opportunities to think innovatively. This includes the use of third-party providers to provide managed services. We will work to treat all employees fairly and compassionately throughout this process."

Local TD Fergus O'Dowd says the loss of 65 jobs is a major blow to the town:

"Coca-Cola has been a very good industry in Drogheda - they have been present for many years. The loss of these jobs is very regrettable indeed."

He added, "I am aware that they are meeting - and have met some months ago - the employees who might have been concerned in this decision.

"They are making every effort to find them alternative roles that would satisfy them."

It is understood that redundancies will be rolled out between October and January and also that ten new roles will be introduced at the Southgate facility.
