Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform, Brendan Howlin T.D., welcomed the new job opportunities and said: “The global medical device manufacturer, CRI, will create 25 jobs over the next three years at its Wexford facility. I wish to echo the comments of Minister Bruton and Mr Shanahan that the Action Plan for Jobs is truly delivering. We will continue to ensure that the economic recovery reaches all parts of the country. Wexford’s employment levels are improving and this is further proof that this policy is working.”
