DesignPro, a leading provider of precision automation and machine build services based in Rathkeale, County Limerick, has announced the launch of its new dedicated Robotics division with a further 30 jobs by 2020.

Having secured funding from Enterprise Ireland to the value of €534,000 to drive recruitment and growth over the next two years, the company this Wednesday released its ambitious plans to commit significant resources to gain a larger foothold in the Robotics market. The plans see an expansion in the company’s existing premise to incorporate a dedicated Robotics division, which will trade as a separate sister branch; DesignPro Robotics.

DesignPro has already kicked off its recruitment drive, with five open positions and more new roles expected to open up very shortly, particularly in the Robotics sector.

DesignPro’s owner and Managing Director Paul Collins commented, “This is an important milestone for DesignPro, having now been at the Rathkeale facility since 2015, we are excited for this next new step. The addition of the Robotics branch will not only bring team growth and new opportunities but will ensure DesignPro stays at the forefront of Automation and Robotics going forward.”

The company continues to strive to be the best in the business, continually investing back into its facilities, team and processes, winning Best SME 2015 at the Limerick Chamber Awards and just this year winning the ‘Best SME’ (Ireland) award at the European Business Awards.
