Minister Perry said at the opening today, “I am delighted to open this facility for Metal Improvement Company, which is expanding its international business from Ireland to support growing customer demand and develop its business in the EMEA region. Ireland offers a great place from which to do business with its ease of access to the EU, an increasingly competitive environment and a highly skilled and talented workforce.”

Ben Hayes, UK and Ireland Regional sales manager for Metal Improvement Company said, “The new operating facility in Galway will specialise in the application of Parylene PVD coatings typically used in the medical device, electronics and aerospace markets.  The company has many years experience in providing this type of high technology coating through our existing Parylene Coating Services Division in Texas U.S.A.  We are excited about our new facility and look forward to working closely with IDA Ireland, Irish Universities and the local business community as we expand our operation.”

Commenting on the announcement CEO, IDA Ireland Barry O’Leary said “Metal Improvement Company is a true global pioneer in materials coatings and treatments and will greatly add to the medical device infrastructure already operating from Ireland, by offering a specialised and technically advanced service to the EMEA market.”
