IDA Ireland, together with Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment, Leo Varadkar will attend a 40-year celebration at Medtronic’s Parkmore facility in Galway today where 200 Research & Development roles were announced.
The 200 newly-announced jobs include significant growth in New Product Development and a new Global Laboratory Services team in Galway. In what is part of a $30 million capital investment by Medtronic, recruitment is already underway with just over half of the roles filled to date.
The projects are supported by the Government through IDA Ireland.
Since 1982 Medtronic has expanded its manufacturing presence to also include New Product Development, Sustaining and Process Engineering, Customer Innovation, Global Shared Services, and locates its corporate headquarters in Dublin 2.
