MGS.Mfg Group To Create 150 Jobs

Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton TD, today announces MGS.Mfg Group Inc, a leading provider of engineered manufacturing solutions to the plastics Industry, is to establish a manufacturing centre in Leixlip, with the creation of 150 jobs.

MGS.Mfg Group's new entity will further develop and build on existing business connections in Europe. The company will be investing over $12 million USD over three years in a 150 person manufacturing facility in an existing 45,000 sq. ft. building on the Hewlett Packard Campus in Leixlip.

The investment is supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland.

Making the announcement, Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton TD said: "Manufacturing forms a key part of the Government's Action Plan for Jobs, and recently my Department established a Manufacturing Development Forum led by industry experts to drive the creation of 20,000 additional jobs in the sector across multinational as well as indigenous companies by 2016. Today's announcement that this leading international engineering and manufacturing company is locating a high-end facility in Ireland with the creation of 150 jobs is great news and a strong indication of the potential for jobs expansion in this area. I am determined that, with continued strong implementation of the Action Plan for Jobs we will see further announcements like this in the near future."

"We are satisfied that now is the right time to establish a new polymer injection moulding and tooling facility in Leixlip, Co Kildare," said Michael Cummins, General Manager, MGS.Mfg. "This facility will support our high end customer base in both Ireland, where Hewlett Packard manufacturing operations are one of MGS's key partners, and other European Markets. We are pleased with the talented workforce in the region and to join the many premier multinational companies that call Ireland home."
