EA only came to Ireland at the start of the year and already has 700 employees. This seems to be a trend. They start small and balloon quickly - i.e Zynga, Google, Facebook etc all followed similar trends.

Let's add some VERY good news

Kerry Group to create up to 900 jobs in Kildare

Quote:
Up to 800 jobs will be in place within three years, while a further 100 positions are projected to be created when the 28-acre centre is fully commissioned by mid-2016.

A further 400 jobs will be created in construction work.

The €100m investment is part-funded by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through Enterprise Ireland.

Minister for Jobs Richard Bruton said: "This is the largest single investment in food innovation ever by a company in Ireland, and puts Ireland firmly at the forefront of global food innovation.

"The fact that this is the work of an Irish company will help raise the ambitions of other Irish companies to become world-leaders in their own fields."

Kerry Group Chief Executive Stan McCarthy said he is hopeful construction of the new facility in Naas will begin early next year.

Mr McCarthy told RTÉ's News at One that the planning process will now get under way and he hopes that by end of 2014 or early 2015, the plant will be up and running.

He said there will be recruitment of graduates from Europe, the Middle East and Africa, with the majority coming from Irish universities.

Mr McCarthy said Kerry will be looking for a cross-section of people with technical and scientific skills who will work across the food and beverage platform.

He also said that the Kerry Group looked at others locations for the business including the UK and Europe, however he said once all the business considerations were made, it was clear that Naas was the best option.

Minister for Agriculture and Food Simon Coveney said the new centre will be the most technologically advanced food research facility on the planet.

Speaking on RTÉ’s Today with Pat Kenny, he said the Kildare site competed with Amsterdam and London to be selected as the location, and it was a statement of confidence in Ireland's approach to the agri-food sector.

He said more than 500 top food scientists from leading global companies will visit the centre every year to develop products with Kerry.

He said the salaries involved amounted to €75m a year, and the jobs were for high-end graduates.

Meanwhile, Brown Thomas has said it will create 200 seasonal vacancies at its store on Grafton Street, Dublin.

The full and part-time temporary positions will cover the busy Christmas and New Year period.

More great news from another indigenous company!

Paddy Power to create 600 jobs in Dublin
Updated: 08:10, Thursday, 11 October 2012

Taoiseach Enda Kenny will announce the creation of over 600 jobs at Paddy Power at the opening of the bookmaker's new headquarters in Clonskeagh in Dublin today.

The posts are in areas such as e-commerce, technology, social media, research, risk management and online marketing.

The jobs will be created between now and the end of 2015.

Paddy Power has created 190 jobs since the beginning of April. It currently employs 2,172 people in Ireland.

The new jobs will bring the bookmaker's Irish workforce to 2,783.

Strong international online growth in recent years has seen the company expand its operations into the UK, Australia and Italy.

It has located resources in the US to prepare for a launch into the online market there.

Those are two great jobs announcements from two remarkable Irish companies. They are among the few Irish businesses which are world leaders in their sector. Kerry Group are one of the top producers of food ingredients in the world and are behind major brands like Cheestrings and Denny. Paddy Power have a huge presence in the UK and Australia which are among the biggest gambling markets in the world. They've also got a growing online French business as part of a joint-venture with PMU. Expansion in the US' primary gambling market - Nevada - is also underway. You could very well see a casino launched in Las Vegas by Paddy Power in the next five years.

These announcements are timely reminders of why it is so important to develop indigenous enterprise alongside making it attractive for foreign companies to establish facilities here. Finland had Nokia which gave it a huge economic boost and an edge in the ICT sector, we need Kerry, Paddy Power, CRH, Ryanair, Smurfit Kappa etc. to all continue growing and developing along with new major companies (Kingspan would be a possibility in this category) so that we can have a critical mass of talent and activity in economic sectors here in Ireland.

Fast food chain McDonald's is to create 700 new jobs in Ireland over the next three years.
McDonald's to invest another €20m in Ireland over the next three years

Up to 12 new restaurants will open around the country in an investment worth over €20m.

McDonald's has been operating in Ireland for 35 years, and already employs over 4,000 people here.

The company said that some of the new restaurants will be in Dublin, Kilkenny, Ballina, and Kildare Village. McDonalds is also actively looking at other locations.

Recruitment for the new positions will begin in January, it said.

A new economic analysis of the contribution of McDonald's to the Irish economy shows the company spent over €280m here last year. It also contributes more than €390m in exports.

McDonald's is one of the biggest exporters of Irish beef - worth €110m last year - and also accounted for €66m worth of exports of Irish cheese in 2011.

Good news that there will be an extra 700 jobs. Bad news is that it means people are going to get fat.

In that case, there can also be good news that some more fitness clubs will possibly open, and provide even more jobs

Updated: 10:08, Friday, 14 December 2012

Manufacturing company MGS.Mfg group is to create 150 jobs in Leixlip, Co Kildare as it sets up a new facility in the town.

The company, which provides engineering solutions to the plastics industry, is to invest over $12m over three years in the new plant on the Hewlett Packard campus in Leixlip.

It said the new facility will further develop and build on existing business connections in Europe.

The investment is supported by IDA Ireland.

''This facility will support our high end customer base in both Ireland, where Hewlett-Packard manufacturing operations are one of MGS's key partners, and other European markets,'' commented the company's general manager Michael Cummins.

''We are pleased with the talented workforce in the region and to join the many premier international companies that call Ireland home,'' he added.

Welcoming the new jobs, the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton said that manufacturing forms a key part of the Government's action plan for jobs.

''Today’s announcement that this leading international engineering and manufacturing company is locating a high-end facility in Ireland with the creation of 150 jobs is great news and a strong indication of the potential for jobs expansion in this area,'' he added.

175 jobs to be created in Sligo as pharmaceutical firm Abbott splits into two separate companies
Updated: 13:21, Wednesday, 02 January 2013


Abbott employs over 3,000 people in Ireland

One of Ireland's largest multinational employers, Abbott, has separated into two independent companies, Abbott and Abbvie.

The company has plants in Cork, Sligo and Dublin dealing in the areas of diagnostics, medical devices, nutritionals and branded generic pharmaceuticals.

The move will lead to the creation of 175 jobs over the next two years in Sligo, as that plant transfers to the control of Abbvie in an €75m investment programme.

Abbvie began trading on the New York Stock Exchange at 1pm today (Irish time).

Abbott has been in Ireland since 1946 and employs over 3,000 people.

In October of last year, it announced that it would be seeking 180 redundancies at its Sligo plant following the streamlining of its global nutrition business.

€100m investment for Vistakon in Limerick
Updated: 12:06, Monday, 14 January 2013


The expansion at the Limerick plant is being backed by IDA Ireland and Department of Enterprise

Vistakon, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson and the world’s biggest manufacturer of contact lenses, is to expand its plant in Limerick and create 100 jobs as part of a €100 million investment.

The company’s plant at Plassey manufactures the Acuvue range of daily disposable contact lenses, which are the leading contact lens range in the world.

The plant, first established in 1995, now employs over 600 people and runs over 31 production lines on a 24-hour basis.

It manufactures daily, fortnightly, monthly and colour contact lenses, which are shipped all over the world.

Global demand for its products has led to the expansion, which is being backed by IDA Ireland and the Department of Enterprise.

It will see it bring in two more production lines to the factory, employing an extra 100 people, and about 200 temporary construction jobs in the short-term.

Paul Connolly, a Vice President of Manufacturing within the company’s global supply chain, said that Limerick was chosen for this ''strategically important investment because of its track record over many years in providing quality products and excellent customer service to markets around the globe''.

Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton said: ''Today's announcement that this world-leading company is expanding its operations in Limerick with the creation of 100 new jobs, as well as 200 temporary construction jobs, is great news for the Mid-West and a major vote of confidence in manufacturing in Ireland."

That'll go down a treat in the Midwest, the Irish Times recently published an interesting piece on the geographic distribution of FDI projects in Ireland. It certainly does vindicate the claims made on the Limerick forum of boards.ie that they get a lot less investment compared to Galway, especially considering it's a smaller city than Limerick. The BMW region's designation as Objective 1 really must help Galway as it's by far the biggest urban centre in the north and west of the country - they even get more project announcements than Cork city which is three times the size of Galway. Only Dublin does better, and we get just three times as much as Galway even though Dublin is 14x the population.

Good to see Limerick getting substantial investments like these considering the continuing fall-out from the Dell closure, struggling city centre businesses due to county/city rivalries and a poor reputation nationally due to just a few bad areas. Hopefully this decade sees a great revival in Limerick's fortunes and it'll be a boom-town before long. Next year's designation as Irish City of Culture can be a great catalyst for that.

200 jobs to be created in Waterford at new medical manufacturing facility

Quote:
US medical device company Nypro is to create 200 jobs in Waterford at a new manufacturing facility in the city.

Nypro has been in Bray, Co Wicklow, since 1980.

It promised 400 jobs for Waterford in 2001, but those jobs never materialised.

However, the company now says it is going to generate 200 high-quality positions at a new manufacturing facility on the main IDA industrial estate in Waterford.

Taoiseach Enda Kenny said this investment is a significant boost for the southeast and is being supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland.

Nypro's new facility will make advanced respiratory and injectable devices for global healthcare and pharmaceutical customers.

Minister for Jobs Richard Bruton said the southeast has suffered disproportionately from unemployment over the years, but he added that recently there has been a tripling of the number of site visits by IDA Ireland.

Good to see Waterford city getting this investment. They have been hit hard by the closures of TalkTalk, Waterford Crystal, the closure of the B&Q and the axing of the Waterford-Rosslare line etc etc. They need a few job announcements like these to redress that balance and get unemployment back down towards single digits.
