Computacenter opens new offices in Dublin, Ireland
Meeting local demand ahead of Brexit
Computacenter open new offices Dublin, Ireland, meeting local demand ahead of Brexit.
Today, Computacenter has announced its expansion into Ireland, with the opening of its first offices in Dublin. The offices, opened in the heart of Dublin in early October, were selected to meet the existing demand from regional technology, telco and e-gaming organisations. Brexit was a big driving force, with many UK-based customers wanting a footprint in Ireland ahead of the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union, enabling them to maintain their presence in the single market.
“While we have conducted business with Irish customers in the past, this is our first permanent base in this geography, and a huge step in the right direction as we look to expand our footprint in the region. The timing is perfect, and these new offices will not only bring us much closer to our existing local customers, but also allow us to continue expanding our offerings and services to new customers,” said Neil Hall, Computacenter Managing Director UK & Ireland. “We found there was high demand for a permanent Irish base, with many seeking greater business security ahead of the impending conclusion to Brexit.”
The new local team, headed up by James Farrell, will be taking the company’s full portfolio of products and offerings to the Irish market. The team is expected to continue to grow and generate more new jobs as we move into 2018.
