US-headquartered Park Place Technologies is to create 70 jobs at its new EMEA operations centre in Cork.

The roles, which are being created over the next two years, are in the area of customer service, support analysts with multi-lingual skills, and engineering with in-depth knowledge of data centre technology.

Speaking in Cork at the announcement, An Tánaiste and Minister for Foreign Affairs Simon Coveney TD said he was "delighted" to welcome Park Place Technologies to Cork.  

"Ireland, as a committed member of the EU, continues to resonate strongly with US companies as the location of choice from which to serve its European customer base," Minister Coveney added.

Headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio, Park Place currently supports more than 15,000 organisations in over 115 countries.

The group employs more than 1,100 people in offices across the world including in San Diego, Denver, Boston, Toronto, London, Calne, Wiesbaden, Malaysia, Singapore and Dubai.

"This investment further cements our position within EMEA, and we are confident we can provide our existing customer base and potential new customers with an alternative option for their support and maintenance, and IT managed services requirements," Chris Adams, president and COO of Park Place, said.

The investment is supported by the Government through IDA Ireland.
