40 New Jobs Announced In Tipperary

The Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Mr. Richard Bruton T.D today announced that the Irish medical devices company TECHNOPATH is to create 40 new jobs in Ballina, Co. Tipperary.

The announcement was made on the back of a €3 million investment to scale their manufacturing capability and drive export activity supported by Enterprise Ireland.

This investment is being made in the Quality Control division which manufactures products for a number of multinational in-vitro diagnostic companies. TECHNOPATH products monitor the quality of hospital laboratory blood tests (e.g. cholesterol, cancer markers, cardiac markers) and prevent the reporting of incorrect results thus ensuring optimal patient care.

Making the announcement Minister Bruton said: "A central part of the Government’s plan for jobs and growth is creating a powerful engine of indigenous enterprise. Over recent years we have established major strengths in key sectors such as ICT and life sciences – we must now build on this to get more indigenous companies growing to scale, exporting more and creating more jobs.

"Today's announcement by Technopath is great news for Tipperary and the indigenous life sciences sector in Ireland. Through continued implementation of the Action Plan for Jobs, I am determined to ensure that we can see more announcements like this around the country over the coming years."
