HEAVY loader builder Combilift is to create 200 new jobs in Monaghan.
It currently employs 300 people at its current facilities in Monaghan town and Clontibret.
The firm is investing €40m in a new facility.
The jobs are being supported by Enterprise Ireland.
Taoiseach Enda Kenny said: "Supporting recovery in the regions is behind this fantastic announcement today of an additional 200 jobs in Combilift and a further 200 construction related jobs. It is growing and dynamic Irish companies like Combilift which are driving a recovery across Ireland’s regions."
"These new jobs will have a deeply positive impact on those who get back to work or take up new opportunities, but they also have a knock-on economic benefit for local businesses, shops, restaurants, tradespeople and service providers," he added.
