Water and waste solutions firm Glan Agua and civil engineering company MEIC have both opened new offices in Loughrea, Galway, as they look to add 60 new jobs over the next five years.
Both firms are owned by construction group Mota Engil, which is expanding its Irish operations and creating a UK and Ireland headquarters in Loughrea.
Mota Engil chief executive Goncalo Moura Martins said the firm is committed to developing career opportunities for local engineers.
“With the opening of new offices and the goal of creating 60 new jobs in Ireland in the coming years, Mota-Engil is reaffirming its commitment to this market and our intent to continue to invest in this country in order to be a leader in the technical areas in which we operate,” the Mote Engil boss said.
Glan Agua currently employs 63 people after being founded in 2008 in Ballinasloe.
Jobs minister Mary Mitchell O’Connor welcomed the announcement.
“I am delighted that this will benefit Loughrea and the surrounding areas. One of my priorities as Minister is creating an environment where job growth can thrive, particularly in rural Ireland. I believe only a strong economy supporting people at work can pay for the services needed to create a fair society.”
Glan Agua and MEIC will be looking to fill a number of positions including civil, mechanical, and environmental engineers to facilitate their expansion. For more information/to apply for the new roles see http://www.glanagua.ie/recruitment.php
