The Dundalk centre will serve as an additional operations centre in Europe to support Graebel’s EMEA headquarters in Prague, and the growing needs of Graebel’s clients in managing their international talent mobility and relocation programs.
CEO Bill Graebel said: ”Our location in Dundalk will allow us to better serve our international clients and their employees’ needs, as we provide our duty of care that is central to our values.
“We look forward to working with the Irish government and IDA to further grow our business internationally and create jobs in Ireland for many years to come,” he said.
Welcoming the announcement Minister Fitzgerald said that a key priority for the Government through the Regional Action Plans for Jobs, is to create jobs in rural Ireland and this significant number would be “transformative” for Dundalk.
IDA chairman Martin Shanahan said that IDA Ireland had worked closely with the company in recent years to win this investment for Ireland.
“The types of roles being created coupled with strategic value of the centre is in line with IDA’s strategic objective to win high quality investments in regional locations,” Mr Shanahan said.
