Forty-four new jobs have been announced for Limerick.
Mechanical Equipment Company (MECO), an American company which makes water purification products, is opening its European HQ in the National Technology Park in the city.
The Limerick headquarters will service existing customers as well as a planned growth in customers throughout Europe.
Limerick City and County Council has welcomed the announcement saying it "will help to build confidence in the local biopharmaceuticals sector, which is a key employer in Limerick and surrounding counties."
Conn Murray, Chief Executive, Limerick City and Council, said the news "sends a loud and clear message" to other multinational and indigenous firms who are considering investing in Limerick or expanding their existing operations in the wider region.
He said: "This announcement by Meco, following so soon after Uber's decision to locate a key element of its operations in Limerick and other positive jobs announcements by Vistakon, Dell and viagogo.com complements the Council's ongoing implementation of the Limerick 2030 strategy and the continued multiagency efforts to promote the region's growing status as an attractive investment location.
"Limerick City and County Council is committed to further developing and expanding its working relationship with regional development agencies such as Enterprise Ireland and the IDA.
"Such a collaborative approach is key to creating new employment opportunities in Limerick and attracting additional investments into the wider region in the coming months and years."
