We are back with our #MeetTheTeam series where we introduce you to the #people who…
Our longest serving employee, Jimmy Jordan was instrumental in establishing CJ Sheeran Timber Packaging and Pallets, having worked alongside the business founder, Canice Sheeran from the mid-eighties onwards. The business cut its teeth in the Irish packaging sector securing a contract to make keg pallets for Guinness and manufacturing specialised timber packaging for the Smurfit Group before being incorporated in 1994 when Jimmy hired Mark Sheeran on his return from London in the early nineties. The rest is history.
Jimmy and his team complete the Final Quality Control (FQC) process on tens of thousands of pallets every month. No matter the issue, Jimmy will always find the solution. His attention to detail is second to none. The bar is set very high and nothing slips past this team. This is no mean feat given the significant volumes of pallets that are checked every day coupled with the high expectations of our customers in the pharmaceutical, medical device, food and beverage and other such sectors. Jimmy has witnessed and has been a fundamental part of every milestone from when the business was just a two man band up to the extensive outfit that it is today, directly employing over 250 personnel across 7 facilities in Ireland.
“It has been a privilege for me to have been part of this business from the very start and to have witnessed every step that we have taken along the way. CJS is a very important employer for the locality and we are very proud to have created a very strong Irish business that hopefully will be here for many generations to come. The business never stops growing and expanding and we are looking forward to seeing what else the future will bring such as more facilities, more technology, more automation and so on”.
