SL Controls creates 20 engineering jobs and expands into Europe
04 May 2016
Equipment systems engineering firm, SL Controls, has announced 20 new engineering positions as it looks to expand into Europe.
The company, which currently employs 51 people, is looking for qualified equipment systems engineers and graduates to support the company’s growing Irish operations and expansion into Europe.
The positions will be created across SL Control’s five operating centres – its HQ in Sligo and offices in Galway, Limerick, Dublin and Birmingham.
“As part of our client engagement and recruitment strategy, we now operate five offices across Ireland and the UK. The geographic spread of our business has been one of our biggest and best investments allowing us to recruit and retain top engineering talent and graduates who are keen to live near their home towns and families, said Keith Moran, managing director of SL Controls.
“We are currently in a period of rapid expansion, having welcomed our 51st team member this week, and look forward to recruiting another 20 engineers by early 2017,” Moran added.
The company has expanded into Europe with sights set on new territories and markets in the food, medical device and pharmaceutical markets. It has established a new compliance department and recently completed customised serialisation solutions in Germany, Belgium, Holland, Sweden and France.
With the prevalence of counterfeit drugs leading to new data compliance directives whereby each drug must have its own unique identification code, this is a fast growing market and one SL Controls plans to increase to 10 per cent of its business by year end. The company’s turnover is on target to grow to €4.2 million by the end of 2016, up from €3.1 million in 2015.
This week also sees SL Controls launch its new engineering software range called TOTALline. Developed over ten years by SL Control’s experienced design engineers, TOTALline provides manufacturing clients with tailored solutions to deliver essential data and information to senior management and the corporate department from which key strategic decisions can be based. TOTALline’s applications are developed to provide clients bespoke solutions across four main categories – corporate, plant, line and equipment.
TOTALline applications are customisable to meet client’s unique needs and ever-changing production requirements. As SL Controls is vendor independent, the company can work with a client’s existing technologies and not burden them with a complete hardware or software re-design.http://www.engineersjournal.ie/2016/05/04/sl-controls-creates-20-engineering-jobs-and-expands-into-europ/http://www.engineersjournal.ie/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/SL-Controls.jpghttp://www.engineersjournal.ie/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/SL-Controls-300x300.jpgNewsjobs,SL Controls,Sligo
