Clare-based Vitalograph, a manufacturer of cardio-respiratory diagnostic products, is to create 50 new jobs at its manufacturing and R&D facility in Ennis, Co Clare.
The company has also announced a €12m investment in the Clare facility, where it currently employs 100 people.
The new roles will be across a number of positions including data analysts, software designers and engineers, and Vitalograph expects to fill the positions over the coming six months.
The company has been designing, developing and manufacturing respiratory and cardiology devices for the healthcare sector for over 50 years.
More recently, it has been working in collaboration with a number of pharmaceutical companies providing clinical trials of new drugs, particularly those used in the treatment of cough and other respiratory conditions.
"We have been at the forefront of the design and development of cardio-respiratory devices for decades but today’s announcement means that we can further expand in the area of clinical trials, particularly in the treatment of cough," Frank Keane, general manager at Vitalograph Ireland said.
The news was welcomed by Minister of State at the Department of Enterprise and Innovation, Pat Breen TD, who described the announcement as a "very positive reinforcement of our position in the global pharmaceutical, medical and clinical testing sector."
