Enniscorthy jobs boost as Datapac pumps €2.1m into business

3 Aug 2017835 Views

Wexford is soon to welcome 35 new jobs after technology company Datapac revealed plans to invest €2.1m into expanding its business.

Technology solutions and services provider Datapac is expanding its Wexford footprint, with €2.1m helping a recruitment drive for 35 new hires by the end of next year.

The job openings will primarily be in technical and business development, supporting Datapac’s expanded managed service offerings.


The investment will also see an expansion and enhancement of the company’s ICT managed services at its Network Operations Centre (NOC) at Enniscorthy.

NOC will benefit through the likes of its best-in-class remote monitoring and management platforms, as well as new automated technologies and enhanced training programmes.

The company claims it has invested in several hundred engineer days to design, configure and implement the upgraded service infrastructure.

Through this, Datapac hopes it can provide completely tailored solutions for its customer base.

Karen O’Connor, general manager of service delivery at the company, said this marks a major point in Datapac’s 35 years in existence.

“At Datapac, we’re deeply aware of the challenges that Irish businesses face,” she said.

“We’ve designed and upgraded our service delivery offerings to meet these demands and remain one step ahead of their evolving needs.

“With a focus on service excellence and continuous improvement in our newly expanded NOC, our customers will experience enhanced levels of service and insights that are unmatched in the Irish technology sector.”

With demand for Datapac’s services growing, the money should help drive new customer acquisition.

“I welcome this announcement from Datapac that it is making such a significant investment in its technology infrastructure and managed services division,” said An Tánaiste and Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation Frances Fitzgerald, TD.

“It’s great to see such a long-established indigenous technology company continuing to innovate and grow after more than three decades in business.

“I’m particularly delighted that Datapac is helping to drive regional jobs growth in the south-east with the creation of these 35 new positions. It is a fantastic endorsement of the talent and technical expertise of people living in the region that these types of highly skilled roles can be filled here.”
