  Martin Dunn
  • Qualities & Values - Patience, hard work, like meeting people, enjoy providing good customer service, desire to do a good job for yourself and your employer 
  • Client Skills - Qualification both education qualifications and practical ability to the job
  • Interests - to be generally interested in the field you are working in. I think that it is easy for people to look at the job and think its great and must be loads of fun because you get to go on the high ropes all the time. That is just a small part of the job and generally you are watching others having fun and playing on the activities and you only go on them to do staff training or to do safety checks. You must also be prepared for the paper work that goes along with a job where you are responsible for that safety of people and this cannot be overlooked.

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.
