Kirby Group Engineering has announced plans to create 300 new jobs as part of a significant expansion to meet demand for its services in Ireland and across Europe.
The family-founded, privately owned company says the new jobs will include engineering, commercial, operations and administrative staff.
As part of this recruitment drive, Kirby is looking to attract almost 100 people to be deployed across its hugely successful Apprenticeship Scheme and Graduate Programme.
Kirby has also announced a significant structural investment, comprising a €2 million plan to upgrade its company headquarters in Raheen, outside Limerick city.
The construction phase is projected to take six months, with the facility expected to be operational by the end of 2021.
Most of the company’s growth in the next twelve months will come from the construction of new data centre projects while also meeting the demands of its customer base across life sciences, industrial, commercial and energy sectors.
