Louth bags 100 jobs as SalesSense establishes brand new facility in Dundalk

5 Feb 2015

Field sales and customer service specialist SalesSense is opening a new facility in Dundalk today, where the company will double its existing Irish employee numbers by the end of the year.

With a facility in Galway and an office in Dublin, SalesSense’s creation of a customers engagement centre in Louth will bring 100 jobs to the area.

As reported by the Irish Examiner, SalesSense International’s CEO Ger Teahon said: “We will fill the jobs in 2015, in sales, marketing, data analysts, IT and recruitment specialists.”

Apparently the company – which was set but back in 2006 – had looked at sites in both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland in search for a suitable area, before plumping for Dundalk.

“The proximity to Dublin and Belfast airports, the infrastructure and, especially, Dundalk Institute of Technology were major factors,” said Teahon, according to The Irish Times.

Ged Nash, a local TD and the Minister for Business and Employment was delighted with the news, quoted as saying the new jobs “underline just how successful the area has been in attracting and retaining large companies”.

“It is particularly heartening to see an existing company expand its workforce. This is a sure sign of confidence in our hard-won economic recovery. We are working hard as a Government to compete for these investments.”
