By Michael Cogley

Irish medical devices firm VistaMed is to create 200 new jobs as part of a €10m (£8.5m) investment, supported by Enterprise Ireland.

The new jobs will be based at the firm's research and development facility in Carrick-on-Shannon in Leitrim.

VistaMed's announcement brings the total number of positions at the company up to 525.

The firm is also expanding its existing manufacturing facility by another 45,000 sq ft.

Just under 40 of the jobs are now in place with recruitment for another 163 roles ongoing.

The company expects to have all the vacancies filled by the end of 2018.

VistaMed managing director Patick Mulholland said: "This new research and development facility will allow us to further enhance the rapid project 'turnaround' times currently experienced by VistaMed's global customer base".
