By Andrew CareyCAHERDAVIN entrepreneur, Seamus Fahy is creating up to 20 jobs with the launch of Ireland’s first independent safety deposit box vault giving Limerick consumers a real choice about where they can securely store their valuables.

With an increased rise in opportunists and planned burglaries and costing less than one euro a day, the new service offers people peace of mind about their prized possessions.

Highlighted in recent crime figures and Garda reports, there has been a spate of burglaries across Limerick throughout the month of November and a there has been a 23 per cent increase in the number of burglaries across the city in recent months.

Seamus Fahy, a University of Limerick Business Studies graduate, has opened Mer-rion Vaults containing several thousand safety deposit boxes of varying sizes.

Up to twenty jobs will be created directly in the company and in supporting service providers by Seamus and his business partner David Walsh from Cork.

Mr Fahy told the Limerick Post that cash and valuables hidden in the attic, under the mattress or in a home safe are a dangerous attraction for burglars who will resort to violence to secure their target.

50 Jobs Secured for Portarlington.

A Portarlington man proved the turning point in a major American R&D facility moving its proposed manufacturing operations to Ireland creating 50 jobs and a new 40,000 sqf facility in Co Offaly.

As a result Kieran Leavy, who runs the well known P&J Security business and is also involved with Portarlington GAA Club, will collect his ‘Finder’s Fee’ cheque for €75,000, representing €1,500 per job created, from ConnectIreland – the IDA backed jobs initiative.

Kieran had a social relationship with a Magni executive who he bumped into in a pub in Dublin. After hearing Magni had plans to expand to Europe and that his friend was en route to the Czech Republic, he persuaded him to watch a GAA match in Portarlington.

The Magni Group is the global leader in corrosion resistant, automotive coatings. Virtually every car assembled around the world uses the company’s coatings. Magni is based in 23 locations in eight countries. Following this announcement, they will build a 40sqf manufacturing facility which can be doubled within five years, in Portarlington.

Having already registered with ConnectIreland after seeing their stand at the 2012 GAA Congress, Kieran put the two in touch and the jobs announcement was made today by An Taoiseach, Enda Kenny TD, in the presence of Richard Bruton TD, Minister for Jobs, Enterprise & Innovation with Terry Clune, Chairman of ConnectIreland presenting Kieran with his cheque, which is tax free.

Dublin alarm company to create 60 new jobs

banner home

SOME 60 new jobs are to be created by Irish-owned security and alarm company Alarm Control 24.

The firm, which is based in Sandyford in south Dublin, employs 22 people.

It operates a long-range radio telemetry network, an innovative form of alarm technology which is resistent to GSM blocking technology.

GSM technology is increasingly being used by criminals to deactivate alarms by disrupting mobile phone signals that are used by many alarm systems to communicate with monitoring bases.

The new jobs, which are being announced today, are part of a €3 million investment by the company in a new monitoring centre at its Sandyford site.

About half of the new jobs will be created within two years, while the company will add an additional 20 to 30 jobs from 2014.

According to Derek Mooney, director of Alarm Control 24, the jobs will be mainly specialised radio engineer positions, though the company is also expanding its monitoring staff team.

Mr Mooney said further jobs could be created indirectly by security companies which adopt the new technology for their clients.

Alarm Control 24 is a sister-company of Action Security Systems, and Irish security company founded in 1985.

Alarm Control 24 supplies alarm and security systems to businesses, home-owners and security companies across the country.

Clients’ alarm systems are linked to their Dublin-based control centre.

The company’s long-range radio telemetry network uses a form of wireless technology developed by KP Radio Systems which is used around the word.

Alarm Monitor 24 is the only company to offer KP radio systems technology in Ireland. It also has its own radio telemetry network, licensed by Comreg.
