DPS Engineering to create 80 new jobs in 2015
The Irish engineering design and project management group has already increased its workforce by 50% in the past three years.
DPS Engineering is to create 80 new engineering jobs in 2015, having increased its turnover by 35% and its workforce by 50% in the past three years alone.
DPS Engineering, a wholly owned Irish company, recently acquired two American firms: Biometics in Boston, Massachusetts and Project Planning and Delivery (PPD) in Durham, North Carolina, as well as the opening of an office in Mechelen, Belgium. Of the 80 jobs forecast for 2015, more than 50 will be in Cork and Dublin, with the remainder in mainland Europe. DPS has been supported by the Department of Jobs through Enterprise Ireland.
Managing director of DPS Engineering Frank Keogh said the company has already created 280 new jobs in three years. “Based on significant recent wins in mainland Europe focused on advanced technology, we expect to be employing 900 people by the end of 2015,” he added.
The company, which is headquartered in Ireland and has offices in Dublin and Cork as well as in Saudi Arabia, the Netherlands, Israel, Singapore, the US and now Belgium, is set to undergo a full rebrand to reflect the significant growth it has seen. The rebrand is aimed at increasing company profile in the market place, both nationally and internationally. DPS Engineering is an Enterprise Ireland client.
DPS Engineering is to mark 40 years in business with an event at the RDS, Dublin, later today (26 November).
