intertradeireland.com Prochem Kilkenny based Prochem is an engineering consultancy specialising in biotech and pharmaceutical projects. Through InterTradeIreland’s FUSION programme, the company was partnered with the University of Ulster and a talented graduate to undertake a detailed 18- month assessment of computer modelling software in engineering design before investing in specialist software that has brought the company to the forefront of engineering design in Ireland. Prochem Engineering is now one of the only engineering consultancies in the country to offer a one-stop-shop for energy reduction projects within cleanrooms with the ability to design, assess, advise, project manage and construction manage retrofit projects without the requirement of an external simulation expert. This new capability will lead to revenues of up to €2million and potential new jobs at the company not least for John George Butler, the FUSION graduate who has since been offered a permanent position within Prochem.
