A new deal has been agreed which will secure the jobs of up to 45 people in Belmullet.
Westire Technology Ltd based in Belmullet has entered into a joint venture with a UK-based company to manage their international sales, marketing and distribution needs.
Earlier this year, under the management of local businessman Sean Noone, Westire acquired the manufacturing facility and the photocell street lighting technologies from the SELC Group.
SELC was founded in Belmullet in 1982 by Sean Noone, and became a world-leader in street lighting control technologies.
SELC was taken over in recent years by an investment company.
However, there were fears earlier this year about the future for those employed in Belmullet.
Sean Noone set up Westire Technology Ltd, and three months ago acquired both the manufacturing facility and the photocell street lighting technologies from SELC.
Westire has now agreed a joint venture with UK-based company Charles Endirect Ltd to manage Westire’s international sales, marketing and distribution needs.
Udaras na Gaeltachta has welcomed the announcement, and says it will protect Westire’s current workforce of 45 employees in Belmullet.
