KAON is now in Cork!

Did you know that KAON Automation has recently opened a facility in Cork? And did you also know that we are looking for engineers to join our machine-building team by the Lee?

The new 900sqm Cork facility at Little Island has been opened to support our customer base in the southern region of the country.

We will also continue to run operations from our headquarters at a 3,000sqm purpose-built premises in Collooney in Sligo (where we are also actively hiring!)

It is an exciting move for all of us at KAON and we are looking forward to building our team in Cork.

Noel Horgan, originally from Midleton has been appointed as KAON Regional Manager and is looking for new team members. The roles we are currently hiring for include: mechanical design engineers, controls engineers, electrical design engineers and build technicians.

“KAON has been growing and expanding over the past few years and needed more capacity so the decision to open in a new market to service the southern region was a natural move for us. The reaction from potential new customers in the region has been outstanding and we are currently hiring to deal with demand,” says Noel.

“We design and build machines from concept to completion so it is a very exciting place for an engineer to work. There is a physical outcome and that is very attractive to engineers. Anyone who is interested in working with us at KAON can contact us directly or look on our website for current roles we are advertising.”

At KAON, we work primarily in the medical device industry so what we do matters. We are building machines that are saving and changing people’s lives.

If you would like to help us do that — in Cork or Sligo — contact our HR Manager Emma Regan at
