Irishman’s logistics firm creates 30 US jobs

Irish global supply chain solution to create over 30 new jobs as part of US expansion plans.

Lansil Global is to create 30 new jobs after opening a new 32,000 sq ft warehouse in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania.

First founded in 2015 by Cork native Alan Coughlan, Lansil Global is an end-to-end supply chain service.

“This is our second US facility to add to our growing portfolio and, through its opening, we aim to enable faster shipping and wider coverage so that retailers can have greater access to goods sold online”

The international enterprise, which was born whilst Alan was living in China, supplies everything from cosmetics, electronics, toys, apparel, household and DIY items to e-commerce companies across Facebook, Amazon and Shopify. It also offers China and US sourcing, manufacturing, quality checks and order fulfilment.

Global vision

The global company which has offices in Shenzhen, China, Nevada, US, Dubai, UAE and now, Pennsylvania, has generated revenues of $40m, with plans to reach $20m by the end of the second quarter of this year.

Employing 100 people, Lansil Global’s growth has seen it bolster international trade through delivering over 15m packages globally.

These new positions will be created across warehouse operations and administration and will mainly be based in the Mechanicsburg area, with some remote roles. This recruitment drive also aims to help foster local talent and contribute to Pennsylvania and surrounding communities.

The fifth-most populous US state was chosen due to its central location, which offers substantial access to major markets and transportation networks, complementing Lansil Global’s existing Nevada Warehouse for national coverage. This latest facility expands Lansil Global’s storage and processing capabilities, enabling faster shipping, reduced costs, and improved inventory management.

According to Statista, revenue in the e-commerce market in the United States is expected to increase by €360bn by 2029. In addition, figures from The Office of The United States Trade Representative show that currently, the US is the 2nd largest goods exporter in the world, behind China, with US goods exports to the world totalling €1.9trn in 2022.

“We are delighted to announce that we will be recruiting for a number of new positions across Pennsylvania and surrounding areas,” Coughlan said.
