We’re delighted to be considered for this award. It is a fantastic recognition to all the management team and staff members in SimoTech for the great work they have done in achieving such significant growth in such a short period of time in a complex and challenging environment.
Our company has grown and evolved over the last 9 years from a small company that Pat Desmond started as a single automation consulting engineer, through to today, where we have become a major supplier of Automation IT engineering & expertise for the Life Sciences sector in Ireland, with over 16 multinational clients.
We believe that we have achieved our tremendous growth because of our commitment to our core principals of quality, integrity, hard work, focus, and respect. All the SimoTech staff share that commitment and this is demonstrated every day to our clients.
The SimoTech team are looking forward to the awards ceremony in March.
SimoTech are delighted to have been awarded Enterprise Ireland’s Market Discovery Grant for our expansion into North America. This will fund thorough research of this new geographical market and help us to identify relevant stakeholders, industry connections, and business opportunities. It will also help us to understand local regulations & requirements, so that we can develop a robust market strategy for meeting clients’ needs in the region. SimoTech has built up very strong relationships with our US clients and Industry partners and we have already received a warm reception from clients at the recent ISPE Conference. We are confident that we can expand our services into North America and we are looking forward to learning more about their challenges and how we can help.
The collaborative and supportive role that the team in Enterprise Ireland has provided to SimoTech has been fantastic. They have been on our journey with us as we enjoyed tremendous growth in recent years and share our success as we continue to expand. This investment and support from Enterprise Irelands Market Discovery Fund is testament to the faith they have in our company to succeed and to keep growing internationally as well domestically. They provide a great service to Irish companies and we are very grateful to them for their support & professionalism. We are looking forward very much to this new and exciting chapter for SimoTech in 2020 and to continuing that journey together with the Enterprise Ireland team.

In July 2019 we celebrated the success of SimoTech in Coughlans Bar, Cork. This night was to thank everyone in SimoTech for their continued support over the past 5 years.
On the night we welcomed our 50th team member Stephen Barry, CEng MIEI.
Over the past year we have increased our workforce by 25% and added 5 new global clients and in 5 years have grown the company by 500%.
This is a fantastic achievement in such a short space of time. Thanks to an incredible team for all their contributions. Onwards and upwards!
