TECHNOLOGY COMPANY HEWLETT PACKARD (HP) is to construct a new state of the art facility at its existing site at Ballybrit, Co Galway.

The 87,000 square foot facility will have a capacity for up to 700 staff and will be dedicated to software research and development, cloud technology and business services and will lead to the creation of 150 construction jobs during its development.

The managing director of HP Ireland, Martin Murphy, said that the new development was “an exciting and very important development for HP in Ireland.”

“This investment in Ballybrit is an endorsement of Galway as a strategic location of choice for HP and affirms the company’s ongoing commitment to its operations in this country,” he said.

Taoiseach Enda Kenny praised the company, saying that the announcement was “a testament to their Galway staff and operations in Ireland.”

The project will create 150 construction jobs during its development and will provide a much-needed boost for this sector. HP has been a valued business partner in Ireland throughout the years and this new investment will see HP and Ireland remain at the forefront of software research and cloud computing technology.
