Forty new jobs are to be created by Mullingar engineering firm TEG.
The new jobs were announced this afternoon during a visit by Taoiseach Leo Varadkar to the firm’s head office in Forest Park to officially open their new research and development facility.
Congratulating TEG on what has been their “phenomenal success down through the years”, the Taoiseach said that the firm was “exactly the type of innovative, dynamic and community focused company that we need as we look to build on the economic progress that we have made to date”.
“This expansion together with the official opening of your R and D building is great news for Mullingar, Westmeath and Ireland more broadly,” he said.
TEG managing director John Hunt said that the announcement of the 40 new jobs is the latest chapter in an “extraordinary journey” that began 15 years ago when the firm was established.
“We are now selling our expertise to Fortune 500 companies in 36 countries in four continents,” he said.
“The official opening of the is R and D facility is just a recognition of our abilities and a very firm statement of our future plans. TEG has already created 30 jobs since our R and D facility opened. We plan to create another 40 jobs over the next two to three years.
“Our customers are looking for our products and our services and we want to supply them.”
