Combilift Monaghan

ZBN Radiant Panels

Combilift recently opened its new global headquarters and manufacturing facility in Monaghan, Ireland. The €50 million investment in the new 46,500 sq. m. (500,000 sq. ft) facility allows Combilift to realise its ambitious growth plans. Combilift exports 98% of its products to 85 countries through its 250-strong international dealer network.

The 46,500 sq. m purpose–built factory is set on a 100-acre site with room for future expansion when required. With 11 acres of roof space, it is one of the largest manufacturing operations under one single roof in the Republic of Ireland.


Incorporating the latest manufacturing processes with a focus on sustainability, the new factory enables Combilift to double its output across all production lines. Four 90 metre moving assembly lines produce a finished truck every 15 minutes. There are 60 welding bays, two plasma cutting machines, three paint lines which use sustainable water-based paints.

The facility also includes a 50-seat cinema training room, 5,000 m² of office space and a dedicated R&D Development and Testing Centre.
