TECHNOLOGY FIRM DATAPAC has announced the creation of 20 jobs with the opening of a new office in Cork.
The roles, which will be created over the next 12 to 18 months at the facility in Ballincollig, are primarily in business development and technical support.
Datapac provides IT services to businesses including Boylesports and GlaxoSmithKline and currently employs 150 people in Ireland. It said new partnership agreements with technology giants HP and EMC would help it expand its operations in response to growing demand.
The company’s general manager David Ward said the new facility “is a key strategic move for Datapac as we look to develop our business further in Cork and throughout the region. We are delighted to be creating these new jobs and opportunities in the technology sector in Cork.”
Country manager for EMC, Jason Ward, said: “We greatly value the experience and expertise Datapac has built up over the past 30 years. Its continued expansion through the opening of a Cork office to support the business, provides a great opportunity for us.”
