Sidero, an Athlone-founded engineering services and cloud-native software development company with deep technology specialisation in the Communications vertical, announced the merger completion and will operate as GlobalLogic (a Hitachi Group Company) in Ireland following its acquisition by the digital engineering leader in July 2023.

As a result of the merger, the combined strengths of the newly integrated companies bolster GlobalLogic’s capabilities across dynamic communications technologies such as radio access networks, self-optimising networks, cloud, and agile development practices, a clear complement to GlobalLogic’s deep engineering portfolio.

Fifteen of GlobalLogic’s top 50 customers have an Irish presence. In particular, the company plans to drive growth in the technology, life sciences, and medtech sectors. As the use of AI in technology continues to accelerate, GlobalLogic will build on its expertise in the AI space to deliver innovative solutions and services to its customers.




Carmel Owens, CEO of Sidero, said: “The integration experience has been positive for us and we are optimistic in the growth and opportunities that lie ahead. We look forward to continuing to help our customers succeed with our enhanced expertise and footprint.”

The merger expands GlobalLogic’s European footprint and positions the company as a leader in the domestic market, bringing differentiated capabilities and increased value to customers across the globe. It facilitates the creation of innovative technology solutions with 170 employees across the company’s bases in Athlone and Newry.

Mark Farrington, group vice president and general manager UK &I, GlobalLogic, said: “Our deep roots in communications technology are a perfect complement to Sidero’s expertise and competencies. With our combined strengths, we will bring tremendous value to our mutual clients and further enhance our leadership in this and other highly dynamic verticals.”
