AN American manufacturing company specialising in the building of modular homes is to set up a base on the southside of Limerick city, creating 50 new jobs.
Clenn Construction is to open in the Galvone Industrial Estate this year, and its investment could lead to up to 400 direct and indirect jobs over the next three to five years.
The enterprise will be operational in 2018, initially employing 50 people, with the potential for expansion and the creation of direct and indirect jobs in the regeneration area over the next three to five years, the council said.
The jobs on offer will be in the assembly of timber frame housing sections, with the company seeking staff with a range of skills including roofing, tiling, plumbing as well as groundworks and machine operatives. The move to Limerick is timely, given the scarcity of both private and public rented houses.
