Kells business recovery to feature on CNN

As production starts at Mafic Ireland Ltd in the Kells business park, the town is set to enjoy worldwide limelight this week when it features in a CNN news report on Ireland’s exit from the bailout.
CNN cameras arrived in Kells recently to see how it is faring as Ireland exits the bailout, just over a week after production started at Mafic’s new Kells Business Park facility.
Kells is now looking forward to the creation of up to 100 jobs by Mafic, who began production in the Kells Business Park two weeks ago with a staff of 30 and it is now expected the workforce will grow to close to 100 over the next year or so.
Mafic and the economy of Kells attracted the interest of CNN reporter Jim Boulden, who reports regularly from around Europe into World Business Today, Global Exchange and Quest Means Business.
As Ireland exits the bailout he filmed a piece on Ireland’s economy. He reported on Dublin and chose Kells for a piece on  economic development in smaller towns around the country.
Local auctioneer, Hugh Morris, who was reponsible for bringing Marfic to Kells said the CNN programme looked why a big business like Mafic would come to a small town in Ireland to do business.
The news report is expected to be a major marketing boost for the north Meath town.
Production started at Mafic two weeks ago with a staff of 30 and it now looks as if up to 100 jobs will be created in the next year or so.Hugh Morris was credited with bringing the jobs to Kells through Connect Ireland, an incentivised investment referral programme, which is managed by IDA Ireland.
