Kelsius announces €5 million in global expansion to support growth

Falcarragh, Co. Donegal, 29 April 2024 Kelsius, a leading manufacturer and global provider of wireless temperature monitoring and digital Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) systems, has announced a €5 million plan to expand its manufacturing and R&D facility. This is in response to a significant increase in global demand for Kelsius solutions which has driven significant employment growth in the company and has now resulted in a workforce that has outgrown the current facility.

Kelsius processes over 80 terabytes of data each year to support the growing demands of customers who require a secure and reliable digital temperature monitoring system. It manages billions of customer records, providing customers with a safe and secure environment for their data which they can easily access for reports and audits.

The expansion plan will allow the company to continue to serve current customers with the highest levels of support and to welcome new customers who are looking for a cost-effective digital solution that provides the most advanced technology and excellent customer service.

Kelsius’ growth plans include:

  • Facility expansion: As Kelsius’ customer base grows and new functionality is delivered to existing customers, this expansion will accommodate increased production requirements.
  • Next-generation product development: The project will enable a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility. With software development and manufacturing co-located, the new facility will allow for a more streamlined, efficient and collaborative environment.
  • Global Expansion: As the demand for Kelsius’ wireless temperature monitoring and digital HACCP systems continues to grow worldwide, the expansion positions Kelsius to meet the needs of an ever-growing customer base.
  • Sustainability: Kelsius has been rated amongst the top 25% of companies assessed by EcoVadis, a global and trusted provider of business sustainability ratings. The expanded facility will be built to a B2 building energy rating (BER) standard which allows Kelsius to maximise energy efficiencies and reduce its carbon emissions.

Increasing demand for temperature monitoring and HACCP solutions

Commenting on the expansion, Kelsius CEO Karl Simmons said, “Because the Kelsius system is so easy to install and use, we’re experiencing an ever-increasing demand for our advanced temperature monitoring and HACCP solutions. This is a testament to the quality and innovation that Kelsius brings to the food and life sciences sectors. From single-site to larger multisite operations, clients use our system as a time-saving and cost-effective way to protect food, medicines and laboratory stocks. Our expansion plans will allow us to build on this demand as we continue to provide our excellent service to existing customers and to welcome new clients globally.

“We continue to work closely with Údarás na Gaeltachta who have been extremely supportive to Kelsius over the years and again now in helping us to make this expansion project happen. I want to thank them for their continued assistance in driving our growth plans.”
