Fort Wayne Metals has announced a €10 investment to expand its production operations in Castlebar, with 40 jobs to be created over the next five years.

The company is a leading supplier of precision wire and components for medical devices. Their products are used in tools such as stents, pacemaker leads, endoscopy, orthopaedic devices and more.

Founded in 1971, the Castlebar site is one of nine manufacturing plants for the Indiana-based company. Fort Wayne Metals Ireland commenced operations in Mayo in 2002, and currently employs 80 staff. The latest investment was supported by IDA Ireland and the Irish Medical Device Association.

Reacting to the news, Taoiseach Enda Kenny said: “Fort Wayne Metals has been an important employer in Castlebar from when they first opened their doors in 2002. It is a real success story having started with a small number of employees, and have since increased their employee numbers over tenfold to eighty employees at present.

“This Government continues to view job creation as one of our key priorities and the West Regional Action Plan for Jobs aims to build on the existing medical technology cluster of companies, such as Fort Wayne Metals.”

Company chairman and CEO, Scott Glaze, commented: “We are very proud of the achievements and the commitment of our people here. Our people are our strength and this is what gives me great confidence in this investment.”

IDA Ireland’s CEO, Martin Shanahan, indicated: “The company has credited the dedication and commitment of its highly skilled staff with making its Castlebar operation the success it is. That’s a great endorsement and one that gives confidence in Castlebar and the region as a great location for other similar type medical device business.”
