Technopath creates 40 new jobs in Tipperary
40 jobs are to be created as a result of a €3 million investment by the medical diagnostics company Technopath in Co Tipperary.
Technopath in Co Tipperary currently employs 50 people. The company is almost doubling its workforce with the announcement.
It currently employs 50 people at its manufacturing and distributions plant at Ballina.
The company is heavily involved in exporting most of its diagnostic products to the US, Europe and Japan.
The investment is being made in the Quality Control division which manufactures products for a number of multinational in-vitro diagnostic companies.
Technopath products monitor the quality of hospital laboratory blood tests and prevent the reporting of incorrect results.
The Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton made the announcement.
“A central part of the Government’s plan for jobs and growth is creating a powerful engine of indigenous enterprise. Over recent years we have established major strengths in key sectors such as ICT and life sciences – we must now build on this to get more indigenous companies growing to scale, exporting more and creating more jobs,” said Minister Bruton.
