Kerry-based equipment manufacturing, Dairymaster is set to create 60 new jobs next year as it continues to expand its operations.

Dairymaster certainly comes from ‘good stock’ having caught the eye of much of the Irish agriculture and tech community here in Ireland when its device, the Swiftflo Commander, was named as the winner of the National Ploughing Championships’ Innovation Awards.

The device is an aide for dairy farming and, once an entire processing system is installed throughout the milking facility, it can show real-time information for things such as milk yield, milking time and somatic cell count data on each cow.

Now, the company says it is looking to expand its operations significantly in order to move into the US and UK markets.

Dairymaster says that the 60 new jobs will be in a variety of roles including design, software, production, electronic engineering, mobile app development, service and installation and sales.

Passing the 400 employee mark

Dairymaster currently employs 360 people, the majority of whom are in in its global headquarters in Kerry as well as regional hubs in the UK and the US.

Speaking today at the launch of its latest recruitment drive, Dairymaster CEO Dr Edmond Harty said: “Dairymaster 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.

“These are top quality jobs with great prospects for the right people. This is our 3rd annual recruitment drive and our biggest 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.”
