LIMERICK is starting the week with yet another jobs boost as Texas IT firm Trusource Labs set to announce 134 new roles for the city.

Jobs Minister Mary Mitchell O’Connor and Finance Minister Michael Noonan are in the city this morning, and will make the announcement at the Savoy Hotel.

Trusource Labs – which provides support for companies using Apple devices – is to set up an international operations centre in Limerick, with the jobs being created over three years.

Services provided by Trusource Labs – which already employs 600 people in the USA – include working with companies and engineers when its products are in the early stages of development, and focusing on ways to enhance the customer’s experience from purchase, installation and activation of such a product.

Finance Minister Michael Noonan said he was “happy and proud” at the latest announcement, which brings the number of IDA-backed jobs to almost 700 in the last month alone.

“The people of Limerick are now consistently being seen as the employees of choice for ambitious companies like Trusource Labs. Limerick and its people offer a great location for doing international business.”

Trusource Labs co-founder Alton Martin added: “We are enthusiastic to bring our innovative customer experience model to Ireland. It is our first step in a larger global growth plan, and we are grateful for the IDA’s partnership and support.”

IDA CEO Martin Shanahan said: “This is great news. Delivering 134 jobs in three years will make a strong regional impact in Limerick, and will be a valuable reference case for IDA in attracting similar high-growth technology companies to the region.”
