Tim Wainwright, managing director, SRA, said: “The proximity to top colleges and industry leading companies, in addition to the quality of life in the South East region made the decision to open our first international office in Kilkenny an easy one.”
“The decision to locate their office here is testament to Kilkenny’s highly skilled workforce, as well as its strong network of nearby educational institutions like Waterford IT and Carlow IT, which provide companies like SRA with the talent they need to succeed and grow,” said John Paul Phelan, Minister of State at the Department of Housing, Planning & Local Government. “This announcement is a great boost for the City, and I wish SRA every success in Kilkenny.”
