Carlow-based Netwatch brings 15 jobs to Newry, with more to follow

19 Feb 2015

Netwatch Ireland is setting up a remote monitoring and disaster recovery hub in Newry, with 15 immediate jobs to rise to 50 over the next three years.

Already employing a total of 160 people – at its Irish site as well as sales offices in the UK and US – this is the first operations hub to be built outside its global HQ in Carlow.

Netwatch is a global risk management company specialising in providing business continuity, risk management and security services to clients across the globe.

The new monitoring and disaster recovery hub will deploy the most advanced protection technologies to protect individuals, assets and premises across the world.

“Establishing a second operations hub means that we can support an expanding client base across Europe, Middle East and Africa and that we can ensure continuous monitoring of their property,” says Wendy Hamilton, COO of the company.

“We are growing aggressively and will double the size of our business in the next three years. We chose Newry because it is an ideal location for us and we have received excellent support from Invest NI.

“The Newry monitoring and disaster recovery hub will initially target the motor dealer industry in the US as well as high net worth individuals in Africa, both key markets for our services.”
