Vitalograph will create 200 jobs in Clare and Limerick

Vitalograph, which produces respiratory diagnostic devices, has announced major investments for Clare and Limerick.

It will see the company expand by opening a new site in Limerick city center and Clare Technology Park, which will see it hire an additional 200 staff.

Vitalograph, which produces diagnostic respiratory devices and drug clinical trial services, has been headquartered in Ennis since 1974 and currently employs 170 people.

It has announced an investment of 10 million euros and will expand its workforce by 200 people over the next two years to adapt to the growth of its healthcare business.

The company is moving into two new locations: Clare Technology Park on the outskirts of Ennis and the Engine Innovate building in Limerick city centre.

In a reverse move to that seen in recent years, the company is moving production of its bacterial viral filters from Asia to Ireland to stabilize its supply line and reduce its overall production carbon footprint.

Frank Keane, CEO of the company, said that Vitalograph continues to seize new opportunities to improve the lives of patients.

He said the company has become a major catalyst behind the effectiveness of respiratory therapies being developed by the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies.
