Japanese medical supplies manufacturer Goodman Medical is set to create 115 jobs over the next five years in Ireland. Goodman's Irish subsidiary, Goodman Medical Ireland, has already began recruiting for manufacturing positions but will also be on the lookout for staff to add to its R&D team. The firm currently has 56 people employed in Galway to manufacture cardiology products. The recruitment strategy comes as apart of a €1.1m ($1.4m) investment into the company’s growth, according to the Irish media. Goodman’s Galway plant will become the firm’s sales and marketing centre for the operations in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Goodman specialises in manufacturing a range of supplies including heart rate monitors, wound sealants and medical instruments.
