Realist?
Realist 
Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.

Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.

200 jobs coming in Medical devices manufacturing  


Thursday, March 28, 2013 




200 jobs coming in Medical devices manufacturing 200 new jobs  are to be created in Waterford by a US multinational.

The American medical device company Nypro Healthcare is to set up a new manufacturing facility in the city, bringing an additional state of the art medical device manufacturing facility to Ireland.

This new facility will result in the creation of over 200 new high quality jobs in phase 1 which is expected to increase in subsequent years. The investment is supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland.

Nypro has been in Bray, Co Wicklow since 1980 and in 2001 promised 400 jobs for Waterford. Those jobs never materialised, however the company now says it is going to generate 200 high-quality positions at a new medical device manufacturing facility on the main IDA industrial estate in Waterford.

Taoiseach Enda Kenny said this investment is a significant boost for the south east. 

Nypro's new facility will make advanced respiratory and injectable devices for global healthcare and pharmaceutical customers.

The Minister for Jobs Richard Bruton said the south east has suffered disproportionately from unemployment over the years but he added that recently there has been a tripling of the number of site visits by IDA Ireland.
