Stephen Hennessy has moved onto a new challenge having recently been appointed Export Manager for Agritech. A former accountant, Stephen is known in the Agri sector from his time with Keenans, where he worked in numerous roles that include Group Operations Manager before moving onto Sales Director.
Originally from Paulstown Co Kilkenny, Stephen grew up on a dairy and beef farm where he experienced first-hand a good practical understanding of farming and farm systems. He will now join the Agritech team to further develop export opportunities. A family owned business, Agritech, based in Nenagh Co Tipperary is well known for its range of high quality nutritional products that include the Welmin Mineral range and Vitalac Milk Replacers, while their Tipperary Grass range includes some of the country’s most widely used grass mixtures. Most of the products from Agritech are manufactured at their recently modernised and expanded plant in Nenagh, which is also host to an impressive packaging, storage and distribution facility. In recent years Agritech have expanded their distribution network and currently supply markets in the UK, Italy, Hungry, Czech Republic, Russia and Australia. Stephen’s role will be to work closely with the Agritech management team to further expand these markets and explore new opportunities.
