The expansion is supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise & Innovation through IDA Ireland.

The roles will be created over three years in engineering, design, assembly, testing, customer support, sales, HR, finance and administration activities. Initially the company requires project engineers and technicians with a mechatronics background to deliver its Track and Trace Solutions.  The European expansion is to support Optel Vision’s customers locally while harnessing significant growth potential across EMEA. The recruitment for the roles is to begin immediately.

“Design and Integration of our solutions required a lot of highly skilled persons.  Ireland is offering us this unique opportunity in finding motivated and trained resources ready to support our European customers.  With the urgency to ensure public safety against counterfeited products, our Ireland operation will position us to be the leading supplier in Europe delivering best quality solutions.”

Established in Quebec in 1989, Optel Vision develops and installs packaging line vision inspection and control systems for the pharmaceutical, medical devices and chemical industries.  These sophisticated automated vision systems significantly reduce the health risks associated with mislabelled products, dosage errors and product mix-ups, while protecting genuine manufacturers against illegal counterfeiting.

Optel Vision’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr Louis Roy said: “Design and Integration of our solutions required a lot of highly skilled persons.  Ireland is offering us this unique opportunity in finding motivated and trained resources ready to support our European customers.  With the urgency to ensure public safety against counterfeited products, our Ireland operation will position us to be the leading supplier in Europe delivering best quality solutions.”
