Primark, which owns Penneys, is planning to build a €75 million logistics and distribution hub in Newbridge.

Primark now proposes a 500,000sq foot centre at Great Connell.

It will to serve as a main logistics and distribution centre for the Island of Ireland for Penny’s.

The proposed project will be on a 38-acre site.

Kildare South Fine Gael TD and Minister of State, Martin Heydon, says “Having engaged with Senior Management on their plans to invest in Kildare prior to today’s announcement I know Primark are very serious about developing a state-of-the-art logistics centre that will bring multimillion euro investment and jobs to Newbridge.”

And, he adds, "Such increased traffic movement, if the application is approved, will strengthen further the need for a second bridge for Newbridge, which I am determined to see delivered. I welcome Kildare County Councils progressions of this project to design phase.”
