Technopath Clinical Diagnostics will be looking to treble its manufacturing capacity at its Ballina plant with an investment of €5m from within the company.
The company’s two leading quality control and software products, Multichem and IAMQC, are now used in more than 5,000 laboratories in 110 countries globally and achieved notable success in 2015 when it received Chinese regulatory approval to sell its software in the country.
With the jobs to be created over the next two years, Technopath says that this will bring its staff numbers to 180 at its facility, following 18 months of rapid growth.
“This further investment will solidify the company’s position as a significant employer in Tipperary, strongly supporting the local economy”
“It demonstrates that, thanks to the business-friendly environment created by the Government, world-class companies can emerge from relatively small towns like Ballina and create large-scale high-value employment in manufacturing and R&D.”
Alan Kelly, Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government
Adding his thoughts, Technopath’s CEO Malcolm Bell said: “I am very proud to say that this significant expansion is the result of a combined effort by our team over the last 10 years to create a world-class range of third-party quality control products for the global healthcare market.”
Meanwhile Thurles based AQS is set to hire 50 new staff over the next 18 months.
They are one of the largest providers of drainage, industrial and waste management services in Ireland and are located in the Archerstown Industrial Estate.
The company, which currently employs 65 staff, were recently purchased by the Manchester based company, Lanes Group.
Managing Director of AQS Environmental Solutions, Benny McCarthy says a €5 million investment in technology and equipment was particularly welcome as it would allow their company to expand and grow over the next eighteen months.
