Olhausen Sausage Manufacture Closes

11 October 2012

IRELAND - Sausage maker, Olhausen, has ceased trading at its plants in Blanchardstown and Coolock in Dublin and in county Monaghan.

Receiver, Jim Hamilton of BDO, who was appointed by Ulster Bank, informed representatives of the 160 workers, including 100 SIPTU members, that the company has closed without notice as it is no longer a going concern.

SIPTU Organiser, Colm Casserly, said that discussions were continuing with the receiver over the payment of outstanding wages due to workers at the three plants and on redundancy terms.
