Burgmann Packings Ltd, based in Dublin, is part of the multi-national SME, Burgmann Packings Group. It provides complete product ranges for composite materials & sealing technologies.

The remit of the Dublin site includes a strong focus on business diversification and over the last 5 year this has led to the establishment of the Braided Composites Materials Business Unit in 2012 and a major capital and training investment to expand their production capabilities. 2013 marked a key milestone with installation of composite specific radial braiding technology onsite in Dublin.
