Making today’s announcement Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton said: “Today’s announcement that iMosphere is locating in Ireland, creating 17 jobs is excellent news. A key part of the Government’s plan for jobs and growth is ensuring that we deepen and develop the impact of multinational investment here. We have a base of multinational companies here that is the envy of the world, but if we are to create the numbers of jobs we need we must build on this and attract a new cohort of companies which we haven’t reached before.”

Aidan Morris, VP Strategy and Business Development, iMosphere said: “Ireland provides with all the necessary requirements for the establishment of our new international office including a highly skilled workforce, access to an excellent research base at the University of Limerick, and the support of IDA Ireland for this project. These elements were essential when searching for the right location in which to expand and grow our business. We look forward to counting our Irish operation as an integral part of our global operations”.

Barry O’Leary, chief executive of the IDA, said: “iMosphere decision to set up a strategically important part of its business in Limerick, is an endorsement of IDA’s ability to attract emerging multinational businesses to internationalise from Ireland.”
