Wellman International is Europe’s largest polyester staple fibre manufacturer and is located in Mullagh, Co. Cavan. The company employs 270 people at the site and has been operating since 1973.
The business model is firmly founded on sustainability – every year 2.7Bn plastic bottles are converted into 90,000 tons of high quality fibres which are shipped all around the world. This saves 198 million Kgs of carbon-dioxide when compared other processes for manufacturing polyester.
Wellman takes its corporate social responsibilities seriously with various community outreach programs. This includes local charities, sports clubs, community clubs and schools.
