A medical devices company is to create 100 new jobs with the expansion of its Athlone base

US medical devices company Teleflex has said that it plans to create a 100 high-skilled new jobs over the next three years

 

US medical devices company Teleflex has said that it plans to create a 100 high-skilled new jobs over the next three years at its operation in Athlone, bringing the size of its Irish workforce to about 435.

The company, based outside Philadelphia, announced the expansion plans after a visit by Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton, who is on a five-day trade mission to the United States.

Teleflex, which makes medical devices for critical care and surgery, already employs 176 people in Limerick and 160 in Athlone. There are research and development facilities at both locations. The Limerick operation also manufactures medical devices.

The company set up the Athlone operation in 2007 and the facility’s expansion is being supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland.

Speaking at a meeting with senior executives from Teleflex at its headquarters in Pennsylvania, Mr Bruton said the jobs were in line with the Government’s strategy to create high-skilled employment.

“Ireland has become a much better business environment in the last number of years and we want to sustain that, particularly for companies which enhance the sectors we have a competitive edge in”

Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton

The proposed “knowledge box” tax system that would allow firms separate income from intellectual property, research and development and to pay a different tax rate on them, was aimed at attracting “some of the most ambitious companies in the world”, such as Teleflex, he said.

Teleflex chairman and chief executive Benson Smith said Teleflex has had a “very positive experience” in Ireland over many years.

He praised the education system and pro-business environment, and noted the ease of access into Europe from the US and the benefits of operating out of a country where English is the first language.
