The job announcement at Longford-based Kiernan Structural Steel was made at the official opening of KSSL’s new state-of-the-art extension to its Longford structural steel manufacturing facility

Nineteen of the new jobs are in direct manufacturing roles and have been supported by Enterprise Ireland.

Other positions available include quantity surveyors, draughtsmanship and installation and are as a direct result of increased onsite activity

The announcement is part of a new investment programme of more than €3.5million, supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through Enterprise Ireland.

Minister Mary Mitchell O’Connor commenting on the announcement said: “I am delighted that Kiernan Structural Steel, a highly-innovative Irish company which is expanding rapidly in export markets, is creating 50 new jobs. The growth of this family-owned business based in Longford for the last 27 years, is great news for the Midlands region. Kiernan Structural Steel is a great example of the type of company Enterprise Ireland is working with, and I wish Frank and his team continued success for the future.”

Managing Director of KSSL Frank Kiernan said: “This new extension gives us the opportunity to increase our annual production capacity and has led to the securing of some very large projects in Ireland and the UK. These new jobs are as a result of this”. 

The 43,000 sq. ft. expansion of the Longford facility gives them a total factory area of almost 125,000 sq. ft. The extension includes 30,000 sq. ft. of a new paintshop. KSSL also added 13,000 sq. ft. to the engineering workshop and a new high speed steel plate cutting and drilling line.
