Recruitment for the new positions will begin immediately, with the company recruiting across all departments, including design engineers and project managers, quality, production, finance, customer service and administration.
“It is fantastic to see the growth of the business over the past 17 years, and it is hugely positive that a local Sligo business has managed to expand into international markets and create high quality jobs for Sligo and the North West of Ireland,” said Arrotek co-founder Ger O’Carroll. “It’s a testament to the high quality workforce we currently have and will recruit from ‘coming.”
Arrotek was founded in 2005 by Mark Pugh and Mr. O’Carroll as an engineering services provider focused on designing medical devices for other companies. It has grown steadily ever since and opened its head office in Finisklin in 2019.
Over the past two years, the company has doubled its workforce and expanded its manufacturing operations.
“Since Ger and I started the business in 2005, we have been focused on investing in the latest cutting-edge technologies to enable us to deliver world-class service,” Mr. Pugh said. “This current investment will allow us to further improve our service offerings to all of our current clients, whether start-ups or multinationals, as well as expand into emerging markets.”
