FOLLOWING TWO SEPARATE jobs announcements today some 60 jobs will be created by two US companies in Cork and Galway.
Minister for Research and Innovation Sean Sherlock announced that Entercoms, a provider of after market supply chain services will establish its European Headquarters in Mallow, Co Cork.
The new facility will create 30 highly skilled roles over a three year period with positions available for industrial engineers, operations research scientists, experts with programme management and more.
Making the announcement, Sherlock said the choice of Mallow as the company’s European headquarters was “very significant”.
“These jobs will provide a much needed boost to the local economy,” he said. “This is the first time in many years that we have been able to attract high end jobs and a European Headquarters to the town.”
Meanwhile in Galway, mobile innovation company Synchronoss announced the creation of 30 new positions over the next three months in its Research and Development and Operations centre. The positions will be in the areas of research and development, quality assurance and service delivery.
Commenting on the announcement, Minister for Jobs Richard Bruton said it was a great example of the cutting edge activities being carried out in Ireland.
The Minister said he will be in Silicon Valley and the western United States on an foreign direct investment mission this week and will meet with “some of the world’s leading innovative tech companies”.
Both of these developments are being supported by IDA Ireland.
