TELECOMMUNICATIONS firm Ripplecom is to create 20 new roles in Limerick following a €1.2m investment to its network.
Hiring is already under way for the 20 new positions in sales, marketing, customer service and engineering, which will be based at the firm's headquarters at new state-of-the-art offices in the Raheen business park.
It brings Ripplecom's total staff to 50.
Speaking this morning, the chief technology officer at Ripplecom Denis Herlihy said: "This investment underpins Ripplecom’s commitment to provide quality product offerings to the SME marketspace. Our enhanced core and backhaul network enables Ripplecom to connect customers throughout the 26 counties.
“Leveraging this new capacity, Ripplecom now has unparalleled reach and can service more business locations than most other service providers in Ireland."
John McDonnell, the firm's managing director, said an increase in the company's activity has led to the decision to offer the jobs and move into larger offices in Raheen.
The expansion also enables Ripplecom to offer a broader range of technology solutions to business customers on a nationwide basis including large urban locations.
The solutions include broadband, voice, cyber security and customer-specific IT services.
