Mechanical and electrical services company EnerMech will create 170 new jobs in Athlone over the next three years.
The company also opened its first facility in Athlone a year ago, located in the city’s IDA Business and Technology Park.
The project was supported by IDA Ireland.
EnerMech has already completed several campaigns from the new location, including providing services for a major semiconductor project for a major North American company.
The company already employs over 110 people locally, including 5 apprentices in the Pipefitting Apprentice Scheme.
EnerMech also hopes to use the base to diversify its offering as it looks to expand into renewable energy, power and energy, and high-tech industrial sectors. The Irish site is also home to the company’s first ISO certified classroom supporting clean welding and pipe fabrication.
Founded in 2008, EnerMech is headquartered in Aberdeen. The company is now active in over 40 countries worldwide.
“Our new facility opens a number of doors for us as we seek to execute additional projects from this base and build on our existing work across a diverse mix of end markets,” said Chief Executive Officer Christian Brown.
“This healthy mix of business advancement shows that our multidisciplinary skills are universally recognized and valued in new ways.”
“The arrival in Athlone of EnerMech, a global specialist in integrated solutions, is great news for the Midlands region and beyond,” said IDA Managing Director Martin Shanahan. “This investment is strongly aligned with IDA Ireland’s strategic pillars of impact and regional development.”
