Noel Zwecker International Transport closes

Armagh, Northern Ireland, UK:  Noel Zwecker International Transport has ceased trading.  The family-run business, which has traded since 1970, blamed the economic downturn and rising running costs for the closure that means the loss of fifty jobs.

In statement the company said: “Noel Zwecker International Transport has decided to cease trading after more than 40 years in business.

“A reduction in trading and lack of parity in relation to fuel prices has contributed to this situation – this is a blow to the local economy that as a whole is feeling the economic pressures of recent years.”

The company’s transport operation included temperature-controlled goods in the UK, Ireland and to the continent.
