CipherTechs’ decision to establish its EMEA (Europe, the Middle East and Africa) headquarters in Kilkenny, creating 36 high-skilled jobs over the next five years is a timely boost, coming on the eve of work starting on the brewery site right in the heart of the city according to Fine Gael TD, John Paul Phelan.
The New York City based Information Security Company specialises in security solutions, audit services, managed services and training.
“Today is yet another good news day for Kilkenny as we bask in the aftermath of another stunning All Ireland hurling victory,” Deputy Phelan said.
“Momentum is well and truly building in our city and county and I note that CipherTechs said Kilkenny won this project over other hubs because of our available skills pool, strong broadband service, proximity to third level institutions and research facilities and quality infrastructure.
“We’ve invested well and wisely in our city in recent years and it is paying dividends. Innovation hubs such as the Telecommunications, Software and Systems Group (TSSG) are a huge bonus to us here and a local and available resource for international companies looking for European bases.
“The brewery site will be a further magnet for indigenous growth, foreign direct investment and international projects and I commend ConnectIreland, the IDA and everyone who helped lure this project to our city,” Deputy Phelan added.
