ACI boast a host of major clients, including two of Ireland's biggest banks. The business built the new centre in record time as it looks to accommodate growing demand from Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.

The new centre will also lead to the creation of 50 new jobs, adding to the 100 staff it already employs in Limerick where ACI has had a presence for the last ten years.

ACI president Phil Heasley said the company was "very excited" by its new centre.
