Lens maker to create 100 new positions

ENGINEERS and technicians are being sought for 100 new jobs at a company where contact lenses are produced.

The latest jobs boost was announced at Vistakon Ireland's plant in Limerick where Finance Minister Michael Noonan declared there will be no change to the 12.5pc corporation tax band, which is a significant factor in attracting foreign investment. Mr Noonan was accompanied by Enterprise Minister Richard Bruton and IDA chief Barry O'Leary yesterday.

Vistakon Ireland is a Johnson & Johnson company and was established in Limerick in 1996. It already employs 660 people at the plant. A total of 200 temporary construction jobs have also been created.
