Mervue’s state of the art factory is one of the largest nutraceutical plants in Europe. A second facility was purchased in 2014 to allow increased pharmaceutical grade manufacturing capacity, in order to meet the increase in demand for products from Mervue Laboratories.
Speaking at the launch of the Mervue Equine LST, William Twomey, Commercial Director at Mervue Laboratories said:
“Mervue Equine are delighted to commit to a three year sponsorship deal with Leinster Show Jumping. We see the 1.35m LST as a great fit for the Mervue Equine brand. It enables us to demonstrate our support for the Show Jumping sector, as the league gives us a vital opportunity to emphasise our ethos for high quality veterinary formulated nutritional products aimed at high performance horses. We currently export our products to over 50 countries and are now looking at launching a marketing campaign in Ireland. We look forward to working closely with the Leinster Committee to ensure that the 2016 Mervue Equine LST will be a successful and exciting event.”
