Engineering firm SL Controls to create 20 jobs
Equipment systems engineering firm SL Controls is to create 20 new jobs across its operations in Ireland and the UK.
The company, which currently employs 51, said it is looking for qualified system engineers and graduates to support the company's growing Irish base and its expansion into Europe.
The Sligo-founded firm has set its sights on new territories in the food, med device and pharma markets.
SL Controls managing director Keith Moran said the company is in a period of rapid expansion. "As part of our client engagement and recruitment strategy, we now operate five offices across Ireland and the UK," he said.
"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."
The Irish company has operating centres in Sligo, Galway, Limerick, Dublin and Birmingham. SL Controls said its turnover is on target to grow to €4.2m by the end of 2016, up from €3.1m in 2015.
The new jobs announcement comes in a week when SL Controls launched its new engineering software range, called TotalLine. It was developed over a ten-year period and provides manufacturing customers with tailored solutions and data to help making strategic decisions.
Primary clients are based across pharma, medical device, healthcare, and food and beverage technology.
