TAOGLAS_LOGO_antennaEnniscorthy-based Taoglas, an Irish technology firm which specialises in wireless antennas, is opening a $2m facility in San Diego.

The new design and testing site is said by Taoglas to be the first facility of its kind in North America.

The company’s technology helps enable machine-to-machine and Internet of Things communication.

Among the applications are connecting vehicles to the internet to track vehicles, allowing smart electricity meters to send information to energy companies and helping construction firms track the location of heavy machinery.

Taoglas was co-founded by Dermot O’Shea and Ronan Quinlan in 2004. It already employs 37 in Wexford and over 130 world-wide.

The company also has facilities and labs in Taiwan and Germany as well as Enniscorthy.

Taoglas’ Wexford headquarters houses research and development, finance, marketing and product management for the company globally. It also has customer service, sales and engineering support for its European customers.

Further investments and expansions are planned in Ireland and abroad where Taoglas expects to grow its workforce by a further 50%. Taoglas will also due to open facilities in France this year.

“Our enlarged San Diego facility reflects our growth rate last year of almost 100%,” commented the company’s joint CEO and co-founder Ronan Quinlan.

“We work hard to support our customers worldwide who, not only need the off-the-shelf or custom antennas we offer, but also need design services and assistance,” he added.

The new test and design centre will support the company’s North American customer base.

“Preparation, planning, experience and the tools to test and debug issues are critical in first time success and Taoglas has founded the IoTx Center to get that all done quickly and effectively,’ the company’s co CEO Dermot O’Shea added.

Taoglas is an international, Irish headquartered, company founded in 2004. Its cross-cultural business-solutions approach means research, design and customer support services are based at the firm’s world-class technology centres in Ireland, the US and Taiwan.
