Emydex Technology, the Irish software company that supplies Production Management Software solutions to Food Processers in Ireland and the UK has announced a number of new key hires that have joined their software development team responsible for implementing Emydex software solutions for their customers.
Carl Brennan joins the Emydex implementation team having previously spent 12 years as lead software developer with DEM machines in Ireland where he worked on projects including a food production monitoring system for Glanbia, a PLC portion control application for Green Isle Foods as well a high-speed check weighing system for Heinz Ireland. Educated with a B.Sc in Information systems in University of Queensland, Australia and a B.Sc in Computing from DIT, since joining Emydex in November, Carl has already worked on a beef kill line and payments system roll-out for Liffey Meats, and an Emydex upgrade of the Dawn Meats site in Montbazon, France.
Carl joins a team of experienced programmers including Conor O’Driscoll, with 14 years’ experience of software development for the Food Industry. Conor previously worked with Leaders retail, a POS specialist company for 7 years, and DEM Machines for 8 years as a software developer before then. Dwain Casey, another member of the software delivery team joined Emydex last year after 12 years working with companies such as Zetes, ADC Barcode and Geodis.
On the Product development side of the business, Dean McDonnell joined Emydex’s New Product Development team in October last where he is working with company co-founder and Technical Director James Grennan to enhance and develop new software modules and components for the Emydex core platform.
Commenting on the recent new hires, David McMahon, CEO with Emydex said “We deliberately set out to look for software developers with over 10 year’s relevant experience developing software for the food production sector. The food production industry is very specialised, with a steep learning curve, so it’s important to have a team of people behind your product that can understand your customer’s needs, and work with them to craft solutions to solve their business issues. The 11 developers now working across our 5 customer delivery teams have an average of 10 years work experience between them. I believe this is what sets Emydex apart from other suppliers operating in the Food Sector space”.
