Cork-based Wisetek Solutions has opened a new operations centre in Austin, Texas.

The US location will initially hire 25 staff, adding to the 250-plus currently employed, with numbers expected to grow well beyond that, the company said.

Sean Sheehan, CEO of the IT asset disposal and secure data destruction services company, said he was delighted to have Business Minister Heather Humphreys present to mark the official opening of the facility.

"Her presence is appropriate as we have received significant support from Enterprise Ireland, which has been important to us as we look to scale up our business in international markets," he said.

The announcement follows Wisetek's merger in November 2017, of its US operations with Computer Discounters (CDI), which trades under the Wisetek DataKillers brand.
