Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or managing a section in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented, and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.

50 New Jobs for Mallow with EPS Group

The EPS Group, a provider of water and wastewater treatment and pumping solutions, is to create 50 new jobs as part of a €3 million expansion at its plant in Mallow.

The company today announced plans for a new design and manufacturing centre of excellence that will generate the 50 new high-skilled jobs.

Founded in December 1968 and with 340 employees throughout Ireland, UK and Middle East, EPS provides water and wastewater treatment solutions. The new facility is subject to a planning application with Cork County Council. If successful, the company aims to begin construction this summer, with an expected completion time of 12 months.

The construction process will generate an additional 35 construction jobs.

“The proposed expansion is the next necessary step in the development of our business, and will reinforce our position as one of the leading water and wastewater companies in our markets where we provide a full end to end service for our customers,” said EPS Group deputy managing director, Patrick Buckley. “EPS design, manufacture, install and operate 100pc of the water and wastewater infrastructure it provides and we are unique in our sector for this.”

“This new facility is designed for and will be equipped with the latest in BIM design, lean manufacturing equipment and processes which will enable us to lead in the off-site build and construction methodology as well as skid assembly and containerised plug and play water and wastewater solutions. We have demonstrated that we can be competitive in our chosen markets with products manufactured in our existing facility for our Irish and export markets.”

EPS is supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through Enterprise Ireland.
