JIm Petersen, boss at US technology firm Microsemi, has indicated that the Irish facility - located Ennis - might by up for further expansion.
He said in an interview with The Irish Examiner that the Ennis facility is "critical" to the development of Microsemi. "We have had great success here. The work ethic is great, the education is great, the logistics are fantastic and we think what else can we put into the Ennis facility? It is a proven success."
