Randox Laboratories clinical diagnostics company, is set to create 30 new production jobs at its Donegal subsidiary Randox Teoranta in Dungloe.
Randox established its Donegal manufacturing and research facility, which produces the company’s clinical chemistry analysers and biochip technology, in Dungloe in 2008.
The new trade agreement between Randox and Central de Diagnostica e Industria will result in Randox pioneering laboratory products being delivered to clinics and hospitals across Mexico over the next two years.
The Mexican company said the partnership with Randox directly supports 65 jobs and will generate a further 20 new jobs.
Dr Peter FitzGerald, managing director of Randox Teoranta said the new trade agreement was a matter of “great pride” for the firm: “We are honoured to have both presidents witness this new trade agreement and of course we are honoured to be working with Mexico.”
Just last month, MEP Pat the Cope Gallagher said “The decision by Randox Teo to purchase the Dungloe plant in 2011, which the company had leased since 2008, was a vote of confidence in its local operation.”
