Technology company IDT911 has announced it is to create 60 new jobs here after making Galway its European headquarters.
The company, which provides identity and data risk management services, will make the announcement at its western base this morning with Jobs Minister Richard Bruton.
The firm plans to hire 60 additional staff members over the next five years as it moves to focus on the European market.
Sean Daly, chief operating officer at IDT911, praised the support it has received from IDA Ireland and Mr Bruton and cited it as one of the reasons the company chose to establish its base here. He added that its growth trajectory requires a "significant expansion and investment in staff during the next five years".
Mr Bruton, who is in Galway today to host the Western Regional Jobs Forum, said the "major investment" by IDT911 will serve as a "great boost for the West of Ireland".
"At the heart of our jobs plan is supporting growth in every area of the country," he added.
