ICT service provider Trilogy Technologies has announced 30 new jobs as part of a major expansion plan. As well as moving into new offices in Dublin’s city centre, the company has also acquired London-based services company B2Lateral, which will see it bringing its services directly to the UK market.

An Taoiseach, Enda Kenny TD, officially opened the offices, with high praise for the indigenous company expanding international in the highly competitive ICT services market.

“I am delighted to be here for the announcement of 30 new jobs with Trilogy in Dublin as well as their expansion into the UK,” said An Taoiseach. “This is a great example of how an indigenous Irish company can succeed and grow in competitive markets. The Government’s Action Plan for Jobs aims to make Ireland a hub for ICT skills so that we can see more Irish companies grow to create jobs and expand their business on an international scale.  I have no doubt Trilogy’s talented workforce has played a big part in their success and I wish all at the company well with their future plans.”

Emphasising the ambition to make Ireland “the best small country in the world in which to do business”, An Taoiseach added, “and Trilogy is a great example of that”.

Julie Sinnamon, CEO, Enterprise Ireland, said that the indigenous software and ICT services sector was the only one to “continue to grow throughout the recession” and that Trilogy had shown great leadership in achieving this “great milestone”. “Trilogy is growing because it is solving problems for customers,” said Sinnamon.

“Trilogy Technologies has grown by more than 250% in the last four years,” said Edel Creely, managing director, Trilogy Technologies.  “Due to our continued growth we needed to expand our facility in Dublin as well as acquire a new office in the UK to take advantage of the growing demand for managed services. This expansion and acquisition will play a strategic role in the company’s ongoing development as we continue to grow to an expected turnover in excess of €10 million in the next months.”

Speaking to TechPro, Creely said that the jobs would be primarily on the technical side, though sales and sales support staff were also required. Service engineers, help desk staff and manage services staff are required, she said, along with solution architects.

Trilogy has seen growth this year in both its public and private sector business, with professional service businesses in particular, including accounting and legal firms.

In the public sector, Creely said the company had won more public tenders as more public services focus on their applications and core value offerings, outsourcing infrastructure management and monitoring to specialist companies.

On the UK expansion, Creely said that the initiative was driven by several factors. Firstly, several of its customers, such as those in the food sector, have been expanding their presence in the UK, requiring Trilogy to support them there. Creely said that the requirement to provide the same level of service in the UK, as well as winning new customers there, determined that a “feet on the ground” approach was necessary. After significant research, Creely said that the B2Lateral acquisition provided Trilogy with the best basis from which to extend the Trilogy operating model.
