60 new jobs announced by electronics firm in Dublin and Cork
SIXTY new jobs have been announced for the high-end electronics sector.
Xilinx, the US based technology company, yesterday launched a $50m (€40m) investment at its Dublin and Cork centres.
It will include the creation of 45 senior silicon and electronics engineering positions as well as 15 technical support jobs, the majority of which will be filled over the next two and a half years.
Some 25 to 30 of the engineering positions are expected to go to Cork where the company currently employs around six people.
Announcing the investment yesterday, Jobs Minister Richard Bruton said: “We must not only seek to attract more investment and jobs from top multinational companies, we must also strive to ensure that more of them are carrying out strategic, high value activities here based on research and development.”
