EMC is to create 200 jobs and open a new office as part of a €100 million investment in Ireland. The new full-time positions, spanning engineering, customer support, sales, finance, research and development and IT, will be based in Citygate, Mahon, Co Cork.
The announcement was made by the Taoiseach, Enda Kenny TD, and the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton TD, with David Goulden, EMC’s President and Chief Operating Officer, during an event celebrating EMC’s 25 years in Ireland at EMC’s centre of excellence in Cork.
EMC has begun recruiting for the new positions and expects to have the majority of them filled by the end of 2013.
The company employs approximately 3,000 people in Ireland who play a critical role in supporting its global growth strategy, focused on cloud computing, Big Data and trusted IT.
Bob Savage, vice president and managing director, EMC Centre of Excellence, said: "Over the past 25 years, the centre of excellence has evolved from basic manufacturing to advanced innovation and product development. Our dedicated and talented workforce has helped to place the Cork operation at the centre of EMC’s global success story. We look forward to expanding our operations in Cork and to leading business and IT transformation for our customers as we embark on our next 25 years."
The project has been supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland.
