Two companies announce 78 new jobs for Co Cork and Limerick
An engineering company based in Mallow, Co Cork, is planning to create 50 jobs through a €3m expansion. EPS designs and manufactures products used in the construction of water and waste water treatment plants.
The company, which was founded more than 40 years ago, already has 340 employees in Ireland, the UK and the Middle East.
EPS plans to expand its plant in Mallow this summer, with a completion date in summer 2016.
The facility is currently subject to a planning application process with Cork County Council. Providing planning application is successful, construction will commence in the summer with 35 temporary construction jobs to be created.
“The proposed expansion is the next necessary step in the development of our business, and will reinforce our position as one of the leading water and wastewater companies in our markets where we provide a full end to end service for our customers,”
Patrick Buckley, deputy managing director at the EPS Group.
Meanwhile, Payback Loyalty, a company that has developed a cloud-based solution that allows clients to capture and analyse consumer basket data for both in-store and online purchases, is to create 28 new jobs as part of a €2.5 million expansion programme at its operation in Limerick’s National Technology Park.
Payback said it will be hiring a mix of experienced professionals and graduates “to accelerate product development and build a sales and support infrastructure“.
Both company expansions have been supported by Enterprise Ireland and the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation.
“Having gained leading industry recognition in the Irish market, this investment demonstrates Payback’s commitment to unlocking the wider international potential of our digital consumer engagement platform,”
Chief executive Richard Gubbins
