EcoOnline Expands Limerick Operations With New Office

An EHS (Health, Safety, Environment and Quality) software and service provider has expanded its Irish presence with a new Limerick office.

The firm, which is based in Norway, is currently recruiting for the new "centre of excellence", with roles in IT development, customer support and account management. The workforce is anticipated to grow from 35 to 45 over the next 18 months.

The new 7,000 square foot space has doubled the company's office space as part of its ongoing commitment to innovation and growth in the UK and Irish markets.

The EcoOnline team in Limerick has extensive expertise in the Chemical Safety and SAAS software sector but more recently has evolved into expanding its product portfolio and has this month released a full-service Health and Safety Software solution product Safety Manager. The firm aims to be the leading chemical safety software provider and hopes to solidify its position as the No. 1 preferred Health and Safety Software tool.

The opening ceremony was attended by local and national dignitaries including Minister of State for Trade, Employment, Business, EU Digital Single Market and Data Protection, Pat Breen and Mayor of the City and County of Limerick, Councillor James Collins.

Minister Green said he was "delighted" at the expansion, expressing confidence that the business will thrive with their current product offering in the mid-West region.

IDA Ireland's Emerging Business Division Manager Rory Mullen added: "This expansion and designation as a Centre of Excellence and operational centre to support its client base in Ireland, the UK and globally, is a great vote of confidence by EcoOnline in its Limerick operation and testament to the company's commitment to Limerick and Ireland. I wish the company continued success."
