"We're announcing 600 jobs today over the course of the next 18 months.

"The areas are administration, fibre-splicing, cabling and smart-metering installations"

"KN was established in 2002, and I suppose over the last 17 years we've grown substantially - from initial turnover of €10m to €340m, forecast this year.

"We've been in the telecoms industry for all that period, and in addition in the power industry and the rail industry.

"So we've grown our business from Ireland and then moved into the UK and internationally".
