Jobs to double at Sligo equine blood check firm

JOB NUMBERS will double at a Sligo plant as it expands its overseas markets up to 2019.

StableLab has targeted growth for that period in British and American market.

It manufactures a portable equine blood analyser to detect infections.

Founder and CEO Heinrich Arnhold told The Sunday Business Post yesterday of his ambitious plans.

''Ours is a product exclusively for vets,'' says Arnhold, who sells it into fourteen countries.

The Sligo based company currently employs 13 but this is now projected to rise to 30 as it chases more overseas markets.
