County Kildare Chamber this morning welcomed the news that BlackRock Real Assets has joined forces with developer Michael O’Flynn to acquire the former Hewlett Packard (HP) campus in Leixlip.

Allan Shine, Chief Executive of the Chamber said this morning (6th September) “This news is very welcomed and further demonstrates that Kildare is the ideal location of choice for business enterprise. This high tech manufacturing complex represents an economic opportunity for large scale end-users and we welcome the news that the investors are planning immediate investment in the site.

There is huge potential to further expand the existing offering that the campus currently offers. Kildare has an extremely highly educated workforce and its close proximity to Dublin City, Dublin Airport and Dublin Port makes the county an ideal location to invest in.”
