US Medical Tech Company Announce 60 New Jobs In Galway

Medical technology company ZELTIQ Aesthetics has announced that it is to establish its new European manufacturing facility in Galway. Up to 60 new jobs are expected to be created over the next 18 months.

The US-based company, headquartered in Pleasanton, California, employs over 600 people on a worldwide basis. This project is supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise & Innovation through IDA Ireland.

Welcoming the announcement, Minister for Jobs, Enterprise & Innovation Mary Mitchell O'Connor said: "I am delighted that Galway will benefit from ZELTIQ's decision to establish its European manufacturing facility with the expected creation of sixty jobs. This is a really exciting development and I very much welcome ZELTIQ to Galway.

"Ireland already has a dynamic and vibrant Medical Technologies sector and we are keen to expand its footprint into new areas and especially to see it develop further into regional centres. ZELTIQ's new manufacturing facility and the valuable jobs and economic impact to be created will enhance Ireland's attractiveness for further similar investments.

"One of the areas I will be focusing on as Minister is to encourage more growth in our regions as only a strong economy supporting people at work can pay for services needed to create a fair society. This will ensure a more inclusive prosperity for all. I wish ZELTIQ and its team all the best for the future."
