Irish cloud computing provider Strencom announces a €6m investment and 20 additional jobs for Dublin and Cork.
Strencom, an Irish managed connectivity and cloud computing provider, has announced a €6m investment from reinvested profits and, with it, the creation of 20 new positions at its Dublin and Cork offices.
The organisation, which boasts clients such as Science Foundation Ireland and the Law Society of Ireland, currently has 28 employees and will be bringing its workforce up to 48.
The €6m investment will be used to aid Strencom in targeting a greater range of industry sectors, and it will fund the development and expansion of its business offering, including the acquisitions of two or three companies over the next three years.
Strencom has positions available in the areas of business development, technical sales, network engineering, technical solutions architecture, cloud engineering and architecture, and product management.
Recruiting has already begun, and it is expected that the company will fill the roles by the end of 2018.
Strencom was founded in 2000 and offers solutions in cloud, connectivity and unified communications. The company’s two Irish offices are in Blackpool, Cork, and Dundrum, Dublin 14.
Speaking of the announcement, Tim Murphy, CEO of Strencom, said: “Our growth targets will be achieved by expanding our service offering, targeting new sectors of the market while also looking at the selective acquisitions of complementary businesses.
“This would allow us to scale while still offering comprehensive cloud connectivity managed services solutions in Ireland. As 25pc of our business is from outside of Ireland, primarily the UK, we are looking at this market, as well as in Ireland, for acquisition opportunities.
“We have identified a number of businesses that are ready for consolidation and would be a good fit for Strencom, as their values and culture reflect our own.”
