Minister of State for Trade, Employment, Business, EU Digital Single Market and Data Protection Pat Breen TD officially opened the new AMCS headquarters in Limerick last Friday.
The minister congratulated AMCS CEO and founder Jimmy Martin on the success of his company and wished them success in their future operations.
“AMCS is a really great success story here for Limerick and is a real vote of confidence for the local economy to see the investment that has been put into this plant here,” Minister Breen said.
AMCS CEO Jimmy Martin said that the opening of the new facility was crucial to the continued expansion of the business.
“This new facility provides us with the capacity to increase our Limerick team by up to one hundred people over the next three years in the areas of product development, sales and global customer support.”
He also spoke about the early stages of the company and the problems they had to face to correctly implement their vision.
“We looked at loads of different ideas and very quickly said that we have to start to monitor bins and customers and what goes into that container.”
Irish Strategic Investment Fund Head of Private Equity Fergal McAleavey said that a big part of their work is to back Irish companies like AMCS which have the potential to grow and scale.
AMCS was founded in 2003 and currently employs 450 people in ten countries, 110 of which are based in Limerick.
They are the leading supplier of integrated software and vehicle technology for waste, recycling and material resources industries.
