SOME 110 new jobs are being created in two separate company expansions, it has been revealed.

Cloud computing company is to take on 80 workers in Galway, while Datalogic ADC, part of a world-leading data collection firm, is taking on 30 staff.

Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Minister Richard Bruton welcomed the news.

"If we are to reach the levels of employment and economic growth which we are determined to achieve, we must create a powerful engine of indigenous enterprise," he said. "Crucial in this will be exporting companies, and in particular hi-tech, engineering-driven companies, and the Government's Action Plan for Jobs spells out a range of measures we will take to support these companies as they expand and create jobs."

The 80 hi-tech jobs at SourceDogg are in engineering, IT support and professional services.

Datalogic ADC, a division of the Datalogic Group, is to open a new headquarters for its business in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, offering shared services and customer management.

It will offer work to accountants, accounts payable/receivables, order management and inside sales personnel.
