Data Solutions, an Irish IT solutions distributor, is aiming to triple its business over the next three years after announcing a €5m investment.
The investment will see the creation of 20 new jobs, doubling the firm's original workbase.
Part of the €5m investment will be used to penetrate the British market with new offices being in Theale, Reading.
The firm will look to bring its IT solutions from leading vendors Nutanix and Skyfii to the UK market.
The 20 new positions are being divided evenly between Data Solutions’ Dublin headquarters and its new offices in Reading. Roles are spread across technical support, sales and marketing and will be filled by 2018.
The company has already hired two new account managers in Ireland and a managing director and sales manager to run operations in the UK.
Group managing director, Michael O'Hara, said that the firm is optimistic of its UK expansion.
“We’ve achieved exponential growth in the Irish market over the past few years and now we want to do that in the UK. We have a strong network there already and we’re bolstered by our new partnerships to grow a real presence now," Mr O'Hara said.
