Up to 50 new jobs will be created, along with 35 construction jobs.

Also this morning, Limerick-based Payback Loyalty is planning to double its workforce, creating 28 new jobs in a €2.5 million investment.

Minister Richard Bruton said Payback’s expansion is  ”a really good example of what we are trying to deliver with our plan”.

“Here is an Irish company, investing in R&D, developing innovative products and services, and creating high-end jobs in the Mid-West,” he said.

Bruton said that EPS is “operating at the cutting edge of its sector”, and noted it plans to target the international markets.
