The Financial Times has established a print site in Ireland, just outside Dublin, to ensure that Irish readers get their copies earlier.
Previously, the nearest print sites for the FT were in Leeds and London.
Zach Leonard, managing director of Europe, Africa and the Middle East, commented: “Ireland has become one of the most serious commercial and economic players within the European Union, offering an important market, which the FT is keen to serve effectively.
“Printing there will mean our readers are guaranteed to get the newspaper at the beginning of the working day, when they most want it.”
Dublin is the FT’s 23rd printing site – last year the paper added Atlanta, Dubai, Singapore and Washington, DC, to its printing points.
The FT currently sells 4,383 copies in Ireland.
