Limerick has received a boost after SL Controls, the specialist software integration firm, announces over 50 new jobs over the coming 18 months. 

Established in 2002, SL Controls is an international provider of equipment system integrated solutions to various industries, including Pharma, MedTech, Healthcare and Technology. 

Based in the IDA Industrial Park in Collooney, the company seek highly skilled positions in the engineering field, bringing the company’s workforce up to 140 employees, with roles that include system engineers, validation engineers, project managers, and software system designers.

50% of the new positions are in Limerick, Dublin, and Cork alone, while the other 50% is located elsewhere. The company will also be hiring in the US, where SL Controls continues to expand with over 20% growth year-on-year over the next three years, with reeling in over €8.8 million in 2020. There is a lot to be expected and anticipated from SL Controls!

Welcoming the great news, Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment, Leo Varadkar, said, “This is a fantastic example of an Irish owned and based company competing and winning Business internationally in a very competitive market. Over the next 18 months, SL Controls will hire 50 highly qualified staff at locations throughout Ireland. I’m particularly impressed by its commitment to flexible working arrangements, which reflects the ambition contained in the Government’s recent Remote Working Strategy. Congratulations to the team involved and the very best of luck with this new ambitious phase of growth.”


SL Controls will offer all its staff the opportunity, when Covid-19 restrictions allow, to work remotely or in the office or a mix of both. 

Darragh McMorrow, Commercial Director of SL Controls added, “Over the last year, we have found there is an appetite among our staff for remote working or a hybrid of working from home and being in the office or on a client site. We feel very strongly that we should be offering this option to our employees – both existing and new – and allow them more flexibility in their roles, as the work allows. It might suit some people to return to the office full-time while others might find one day a week in the office is perfect for them. We are going to work with our team over the coming months to offer them this flexibility.”

CEO and co-founder Keith Moran said the Business has had, “an exceptional few years and continues to experience strong growth as a result of an increase in demand for our services and solutions with key partners both nationally and internationally.”

Carol Gibbons of Enterprise Ireland said, “This is very positive news for SL Controls. Enterprise Ireland has been proud to support the company on its rapid growth path, which is another significant milestone for this ambitious and dynamic company. SL Controls has a strong customer base in Ireland and is expanding its international footprint in Europe and the US, and Enterprise Ireland looks forward to working with the company during this phase of growth.”
