Electronix Services, a Dublin-based company, is looking to increase recruitment due to continued growth in the business.

Founded in 1994, the company, which repairs and services industrial electronic equipment, began trading as Electronix Services in 2000 under owner Maurice Regan.

Regan told the Business Post that the company hopes to increase its workforce by 10 to help it deal with capacity requirements.

“We’re growing at about 20 per cent per annum. We’re probably putting most of our effort into recruiting now,” Regan said.

Electronix currently employs 20 staff, but Regan said he hopes to add 10 more by the end of 2025.

Regan said the company’s turnover is expected to reach above €3 million this year and admitted it received minimal funding.

“We self-fund. We basically fund based on our growth and activities from our day-to-day profitability,” he said.

He said the company was developed based on his experiences working for a US technology company.

“I ran a European division of an American company for many years. We were doing something like Electronix, dealing with large manufacturers and OEMs [original equipment manufacturers].”

Regan said he noticed a gap in the market and that a lot of the company’s business is through referrals.

He credits Enterprise Ireland’s Spotlight on Skills programme with helping the company when it ran into recruitment issues.

“Over the past couple of years, we have encountered issues in sourcing/hiring appropriately skilled technical staff locally in Ireland,” he said.

“The programme greatly helped us address this human resource skills shortage issue. It helped us evolve our methodologies to broaden our search filters in the hiring process and find candidates we may not have considered previously.”

Regan said the company consisted of difficult roles and highlighted the impact that the Enterprise Ireland program has had on its training.

“The programme also helped us develop our in-house training programmes for these new hires, resulting in them quickly becoming very effective in their technically challenging roles,” he said.

Regan attributed all this help to the success and constant growth of the company and hopes the increase in staff will allow the company to continue growing.
