New jobs announced for Dublin and Limerick
BUSINESS search engine CashIQ has announced the creation of 45 new jobs in Dublin and semiconductor firm Zentrum Mikroelektronik Dresden (ZMDI) will generate 35 new jobs in Limerick.
The CashIQ jobs will be created over the next three years while the Limerick jobs are for engineering graduates and technicians and will be created over five years.
Minister for Finance Michael Noonan said the addition of ZMDI to Limerick is "a major endorsement of Ireland's capabilities in the area of analog and mixed signal electronics and R&D".
The company supplies analog and mixed-signal semiconductors for the automotive, mobile medical, industrial automation and consumer markets.
The new centre will focus on the development of energy saving and power management products.
In a statement, the company said growth is being driven by the demand for increased energy efficiency in data centre cooling, telecommunications and high-end computing.
