As part of IDA’s new strategy, IDA has committed to bring new name investors into Ireland. Every day, IDA executives across the world are looking towards embracing not just large multinational corporations (MNCs), but also working with high-growth companies, who aspire to be the Google, Oracle and Facebook of the future.
Making the announcement Minister Richard Bruton said: “Targeting high-growth emerging companies is a key part of the government’s Action Plan for Jobs. The thinking behind this drive is that these companies will establish deep roots here from early in their growth and make a substantial impact on our economy.
“There is also, of course, the possibility that one of these companies will turn into a world-leading company of the future. Today’s announcement that six such fast-growing young companies are creating 185 jobs in Dublin and Wexford helps confirm that this strategy is working, but above all is a great boost for jobs in Ireland.”
Martin Shanahan, CEO IDA Ireland, said: “IDA Ireland’s strategy of attracting high-growth companies has resulted in the creation of high-value jobs in IT, internet and digital media which has greatly added to Ireland’s reputation as a global tech centre. Many companies that started out with modest plans are now some of the top employers in Ireland making a significant contribution to the economy. IDA Ireland looks forward to continuing to partner closely with this new group of companies as they scale their global footprint from Ireland.”
Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform, Brendan Howlin welcomed the new job opportunities and said: “The global medical device manufacturer, CRI, will create 25 jobs over the next three years at its Wexford facility. I wish to echo the comments of Minister Bruton and Martin Shanahan that the Action Plan for Jobs is truly delivering. We will continue to ensure that the economic recovery reaches all parts of the country. Wexford’s employment levels are improving and this is further proof that this policy is working.”http://www.engineersjournal.ie/2015/06/16/185-jobs-announced/http://www.engineersjournal.ie/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/IDA1.jpghttp://www.engineersjournal.ie/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/IDA1-300x300.jpgNewsIDA Ireland,jobs,medical devices
