US firm creates 30 jobs with new European headquarters in Cork

US-BASED company Entercoms is to establish its European headquarters in Mallow, Co Cork, and create 30 jobs.

The new facility will lead to the creation of 30 highly skilled roles over a three-year period including positions for specialised industrial engineers, operations research scientists, and business experts.

Minister for Research and Innovation Sean Sherlock TD said the jobs would provide a much-needed boost to the local economy.

“The high skilled jobs to be created signify the high level of graduates our third-level institutions are producing,” said Minister Sherlock.

“I look forward to working with Entercoms in developing their future expansion strategy.”

Welcoming the announcement, Barry O’Leary, CEO of IDA Ireland, said the decision by Entercoms endorsed Ireland as a leading location for companies.

“Entercoms is a leading provider of after-market supply chain service support for companies in the industrial, medical, automotive and hi-tech sectors,” he said.

Established in 2004, Dallas-based Entercoms provides aftermarket supply chain services to help companies improve operations, customer satisfaction and profitability.

Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton and CEO of IDA Barry O’Leary are currently an investment mission to the west coast of the United States.
