During a visit to County Wicklow last weekend, Taoiseach Leo Varadkar announced 187 jobs are to be created at Crowley Carbon in Powerscourt House.

The company offers energy efficiency solutions to large and small businesses and is expanding, with the creation of engineering and administration roles.

The Taoiseach welcomed the expansion of a domestic Irish company and one whose work contributes to environmental sustainability.

He was joined at the launch by Minister for Health Simon Harris and Minister of State Andrew Doyle.

The expansion received key support from the Irish government through Enterprise Ireland.

'This is excellent news for the Wicklow region,' said the Taoiseach. 'Crowley Carbon is at the cutting edge of the energy efficiency sector, and I am delighted to see the company expanding its operations here. These new jobs, which are supported by the Government through Enterprise Ireland, are a testament to the company's success in recent years, when it has experienced very impressive growth, providing their innovative services to some of the world's biggest firms. Supporting initiatives that contribute to the achievement of Ireland's climate and energy targets is a priority for government and is also a key element of Project Ireland 2040 through the €500 million Climate Action Fund. A combination of vision and hard work has led to Crowley Carbon's success and I wish them the very best in their endeavours.'
