200 new jobs have been announced by VistaMed, the leading Irish catheter and extrusion provider to the global medical device industry, at the official opening of their new, state-of-the-art Research and Development facility in Carrick-on-Shannon.
The new positions will bring the total number of jobs at VistaMed to 525, comprising a mix of positions, from engineering staff to product builders.
The announcement of the new jobs is part of a new investment programme of more than €10million, supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through Enterprise Ireland.
37 of the 200 new jobs are now in place and recruitment for the remaining positions is ongoing. All positions are expected to be filled by the end of 2018.
Welcoming the announcement in Co. Leitrim today, the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Mary Mitchell O’Connor TD said: “Today we see the evidence that a rural county such as Leitrim can be home to successful international companies like VistaMed and can provide them with the community, infrastructure and resources that they need to thrive and grow their businesses.
“To announce 200 jobs for an Irish-owned, highly innovative, global supplier of medical technology out of County Leitrim, sums up why we can be ambitious – indeed, must be ambitious - in our plans for regional development and job creation.
“This is a further sign of a momentum for job creation in our regions following recent regional jobs announcements.”
