The jobs will be in Kerry with a variety of roles based there, and also in Britain and the US. They will come on stream next year.

Dairymaster’s award-winning chief executive Dr Edmond Harty said the company has ambitious plans for 2016.

“With this new recruitment drive we are very keen to get the right people into the right jobs to help us drive the company.

"We are renowned for innovation and technology in our products and we can only continue to do this with the support of our staff,” he said.

The new jobs are in design, software, production, electronic engineering, mobile app development, service and installation and sales amongst others.

Dr Harty said these are top-quality jobs with great prospects for the right people.

It is the company’s third annual, and biggest, recruitment drive yet.

“Traditionally we target experienced professionals returning home for Christmas and we will be doing that again this year, while also looking to the Irish jobs market,” he said.

Dairymaster is looking ahead to an exciting year as it targets the US and British dairy markets to grow its presence in each.

The company has customers in over 40 countries and produces state-of-the-art dairy equipment technology.

The firm currently employs 360 people in roles ranging from manufacturing and sales through to engineering, software and much more in its global headquarters in Kerry and in regional hubs in Britain and the US.
