A Sennheiser headphone production facility in Tullamore, Ireland was badly damaged by fire in the early hours of Monday morning, May 3. No one was injured in the fire. In spite of the substantial damage to the factory, Peter Callan, general manager of Sennheiser Ireland, is confident that operations will resume in a relatively short period of time. Adjacent facilities have already been secured, and the rebuilding process has begun. The cause of the fire is as yet unknown.

In a statement, Rolf Meyer, president marketing and sales for Sennheiser electronic GmbH & Co. KG and speaker of the executive committee, has reaffirmed his commitment to Ireland as a company location. "We immediately began the process of rebuilding the Tullamore factory," said Meyer. "Volker Bartels, president manufacturing, is currently at the site to coordinate all activities together with Peter Callan and to get the factory back into production as quickly as possible. The entire Sennheiser Ireland team is doing everything it can to support them."

In addition to the Tullamore production facility, Sennheiser has three other factories, two in Germany and one in the USA.
