Cork company Accuflow, a global manufacturer of wireless technology, has announced a €1million investment with the creation of 30 new jobs.
The company hopes to transform home energy bills through a new home heating controls product called Smartzone, which it says will save consumers an average of €300 a year. The Togher-based company is planning a major three-year global expansion which will increase its workforce from 10 to 40 people. These 30 new jobs will be filled across sales, administration, marketing computer programming and software development roles.
The company said that for a once-off installation cost of €199, Smartzone will enable consumers to manage their heating and hot water independently at the touch of a button from any smartphone, tablet or PC.
Accuflow founder, Justin McInerney said, “Up until now, smart home technology was limited to a very niche audience, mostly trade – but at Accuflow, we want to transform the home heating and water market by making it easy and affordable for everyone to see this incredible connectivity technology at work.”
