A Thumbs Up For Stability

Fine Gael TD for Tipperary North, Noel Coonan, has welcomed the announcement of 40 new jobs to be created at Irish medical devices company Technopath in Ballina, here in Co. Tipperary. The jobs were announced at the company’s Ballina plant last Friday morning by Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton TD.

Picture shows – On the streets of Nenagh last week are Noel Coonan TD with Minister for Jobs, Enterprise & Innovation Richard Bruton, Cllr. Tom Moylan and Peter Ward, County Choice on the streets of Nenagh last week. Minister Bruton was in town canvassing for a Yes Vote in Thursday’s referendum.

I am delighted by today’s announcement which is great news for North Tipperary. Forty people and their families will significantly benefit from this announcement, as will the general Ballina area. The announcement was made on the back of a €3 million investment by Technopath to scale up their manufacturing capability and drive export activity supported by Enterprise Ireland,” said Deputy Coonan.

Creating an environment for job creation is the primary focus of this Government. It is particularly gratifying that these jobs are being created by an Irish company. While there is no doubt that Foreign Direct Investment will play a central role in driving economic growth in Ireland in the future, supporting strong indigenous enterprise that can compete on the world stage is also key.”

A Yes vote in the upcoming referendum will bring the stability, certainty and confidence that will allow companies, like Technopath, to continue to grow and develop. I have every confidence that the progress we have been making since this Government came to office will continue. Voting Yes on 31st May will ensure continuance,” concluded the local Fine Gael TD.

Ireland has become renowned as a global hub for ICT and life sciences. Technopath is a leader in the health-care and biotechnology sector and its products are being used in five continents.
