Tennessee and Ireland, a ‘lucky match.’

In observance of St. Patrick’s Day the good folks at the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development have sent along some information on the business ties between Tennessee and Ireland.

ECD says 14 Irish companies are operating at 29 locations across the state, employing 4,027 people and investing a combined $69.2 million. Exports to Ireland from Tennessee totaled more than $120 million in 2013, an increase of over 30 percent in the last five years. Pharmaceutical and medicine and medical equipment and supplies account for 98.6 percent of all Tennessee imports from Ireland. Three of the five largest Irish companies by employment in Tennessee are located in Memphis: Trane Company, APAC Tennessee Inc. and Smurfit Companies.

And here’s a 2012 story on Irish immigrants in Memphis.
