The systems integration company is adding new roles at its EU headquarters and manufacturing centre in Dunleer, Co Louth.

US company Simply NUC, which provides systems for mini PCs, is bringing 30 new roles to its Irish facility over the next two years.

The company established its EU headquarters and manufacturing centre at the IDA business park in Dunleer, Co Louth, last year to support its expansion in Europe.

Established in Texas in 2015, Simply NUC provides mini PC systems to businesses and consumers, as well as end-to-end project development, custom operating system installations and accessories.

Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise Trade and Employment Leo Varadkar, TD, said the new jobs are great news for Dunleer.

“This announcement demonstrates, once again, that Louth is an attractive location with much to offer investors. We are succeeding in attracting high calibre companies and highly skilled jobs across the entire country, a top priority for the Government,” he said.

Simply NUC’s CEO, Aaron Rowsell, said the EMEA region was an obvious choice for the company as it decided to expand its mini PC business. “After extensive research, the Louth area was the best choice for us; we are thrilled to be here!”

IDA Ireland’s CEO, Martin Shanahan, added: “The decision by Simply NUC to choose Dunleer as the location of its EU HQ from where it will manage its European expansion is very welcome news for the north-east.”

Simply NUC’s new jobs announcement comes after a slew of other companies revealed hiring plans around Ireland yesterday (4 May).

Eight high-growth tech companies from the US and elsewhere in Europe announced plans to bring a total of around 185 new jobs spread across the technology and business service sectors. The jobs will span Shannon, Galway, Dundalk, Cork and Dublin.

Additionally, design and digital advisory company Lucky Beard announced an investment of €1m in its European headquarters in Dublin yesterday, with plans to hire UX and digital product designers in 2021.
