Hewlett Packard Job Losses

It is with regret that Kildare County Council received the news of job losses at Hewlett Packard Inc. in Leixlip, Co. Kildare.

First and foremost our thoughts are with the workers and their families who today received this devastating news.

Obviously it is a very serious blow for North Kildare and indeed the Mid East Region.   Hewlett Packard is an internationally renowned high tech company who have had a strong association with Kildare since 1995.   We have met with the company this morning and are assured that H.P Enterprises will continue to have a strong presence in Leixlip into the future and in an expected meeting with the Minister  these discussions will be highlighted with her .

The focus now is to make all the appropriate resources of Kildare County Council available through our dedicated  Economic Development Department and to work with the Government, the IDA and the relevant agencies to ensure the workers affected and those remaining are supported in every way possible.
