South East Meath Chamber of Commerce
In the South East Meath Economic Corridor (SEMEC) we are open for business, and in a time when harnessing efficiencies and innovation in new and existing enterprises is of paramount importance, SEMEC can provide the solution. South East Meath is ideally located to take advantage of excellent transport infrastructure, including: three rail lines which provide rail access not only to Dublin City (and beyond) but direct to Belfast City, four motorways (M1-M4), Dublin Airport (<15 minutes) and the sea ports of Dublin and Drogheda.
In SEMEC we not only have a highly educated indigenous work force, but encouraging key personnel to relocate to the area has not proven difficult for business thanks to the area’s scenic and idyllic location (much of it along the coast) as well as the quality and variety of the housing stock at very reasonable prices (in particular by comparison with Dublin city and suburbs).
Access to key enabling infrastructure, such as next generation fibre optic broadband, high voltage electricity networks, gas, water, etc. is all possible within the SEMEC area, and we are ready to work with you to find the specific location to meet your energy and service needs. The area has a strong and well established business community, who work together to develop synergies and to ensure that promotion and development of the area remains a priority not only locally, but at a national level (within the IDA and other relevant state bodies and agencies).

The Chamber was set up in 2011, at a time of deep recession and hardship in the area, with the aim of promoting the South East Meath area to encourage additional economic activity and inward investment in the region, which will have a consequential benefit to the whole community. We work to market the area to the national and international business community and promote its prime business location, beautiful environment, many amenities and close proximity to Dublin City Centre and Dublin Airport. We have developed links with education providers, embassies, state agencies, property agencies, professional organisations, local government, etc. all with the aim of attracting inward investment and jobs to the area.
