National Pen, a leading global provider of personalised marketing merchandise, is celebrating its 30th anniversary in Dundalk. The expansion, creating 250 jobs, is supported by the Irish Government through IDA Ireland.

The company established its International Headquarters in Dundalk in 1987, comprising a manufacturing plant which personalises promotional products, and a contact centre which supports corporate functions including Finance, HR, Recruitment, IT,  E-commerce and other support functions.

Beginning with a limited workforce in Dundalk, the company celebrates its 30th anniversary year having reached the milestone of over 1,000 employees between full-time and temporary staff.

National Pen Promotional Products markets and sells its products in 24 countries globally.  The company provides an end-to-end personalized service for its customers by meeting their promotional product needs. The Dundalk operation alone sold more than 130 million personalised promotional products into its markets in 2016.

National Pen’s CEO Peter Kelly said: “It is with great pride that we celebrate our 30 years anniversary in Dundalk.  Over the past 10 years the company has grown significantly to now over 1000 employees. It is truly down to the entire team across National Pen that we have developed and cultivated our success.  We manifest a culture of opportunity, hard work, autonomy and respect.   A year ago in December 2016 National Pen joined the Cimpress family which extends our opportunities for further investment.  It continues to be an exciting time for all involved.”

“Dundalk has proven a great location that has allowed us to grow to the extent we have.  Next year we will be taking a second premises in Dundalk to accommodate our growth over the coming years,” Peter Kelly added.

IDA Ireland’s CEO Martin Shanahan said: “Supporting established companies to develop and grow, adding jobs, is a key focus for us. National Pen is a great example, having instigated new strategic initiatives to significantly grow the business and ensure the Irish operation’s future success. The longevity of this company – 30 years in operation now in Dundalk –  points to a substantial contribution to the local and wider regional economy. I congratulate them on their anniversary and wish them continued success.”
