Ballina firm Technopath to create 60 new jobs in Tipp

A Ballina-based company that makes medical devices has announced 60 new jobs with a €5m expansion at its plant.

Technopath Clinical Diagnostics, a global leader in quality controls and software for clinical laboratories, announced the expansion in manufacturing capacity to support the rapid growth of its world-leading Multichem and IAMQC product range.

Malcolm Bell, CEO, said: “I am very proud to say that this significant expansion is the result of a combined effort by our team over the last 10 years to create a world-class range of third-party quality control products for the global healthcare market. Our range is best-in-class on a global scale. We are now very confident about the future for our business.

“We are proud to have grown the business organically here in Tipperary and look forward to expanding our team over the coming years. This would not be possible without the support of Government and our local Minister, Alan Kelly, along with Enterprise Ireland who facilitated our growth plans.”

Minister Kelly said: “Technopath Clinical Diagnostics deliver market-leading quality control diagnostic products to some of the world’s biggest laboratories. Its co-founder and CEO Malcom Bell with his team have developed a cutting-edge manufacturing facility in Ballina that is producing world-leading quality control products for global hospital and clinical laboratories.

“This further investment will solidify the company’s position as a significant employer in Tipperary, strongly supporting the local economy.”
