In Business & Jobs, Jobs, Local Issues, News by Denis Naughten

The public announcement by local company Vistamed that it is to create a further 200 jobs in Carrick-on-Shannon is a huge boost not just for the local economy but the region as a whole, Minister Denis Naughten has stated.

“The very significant announcement not just of manufacturing related jobs but of research and development jobs builds on other recent announcements such as the new Surmodics R&D  jobs announcement of 100 medical device jobs in Ballinasloe,” stated Minister Naughten.

“It is also important to note that the creation of 200 jobs in Carrick-on-Shannon is the equivalent of 2,000 jobs for Galway City,” he added.
