Irish-owned packaging company Zeus officially opened its €15m Dublin premises and announced acquisition of Irish hygiene supply company Essential Solutions.

The Naas-based company will continue to trade as Essential Solutions and predicts a 50% increase in staff over the next two years.

"Essential Supplies has built a highly successful business model, with invaluable relationships with key distributors nationwide.

“Today, we have also officially opened our Dublin headquarters, which has now doubled in size.

"The new facility will drive and support our flagship e-commerce site, which allows individuals to order from our full range of products.”
