Irish telecoms provider Magnet has announced the opening of a new office in Galway to serve businesses across Galway, Mayo, Roscommon, Clare, Limerick, Tipperary, Sligo, Leitrim and Donegal.

Established in 2004 and headquartered in Clonshaugh, Dublin, Magnet provides broadband, telephony, VoIP, wi-fi, hosting and other cloud solutions to businesses and consumers.

The company’s new office in Galway will provide a sales function as well as local account management to companies in the region for Magnet’s suite of telecoms solutions.

Speaking at the launch, regional sales director Phil Clapperton said: “The new Galway office is being set up at an ideal time with lots of ambitious local developments underway, from the establishment of the Galway City Innovation District to the redevelopment of the docks area.

“As a telecoms company with a strong business focus, we want to be in a position to better serve businesses in Galway and surrounding counties with local account management that can efficiently respond to their needs. Furthermore, with such an active remote and mobile working culture, we feel there’s an excellent opportunity to educate businesses about the benefits of cloud services and what Magnet can deliver in that respect.”

Magnet will host a free information evening in the Galway Technology Centre on January 14th, which will look at how companies can transition to and benefit from VoIP and hosted PBX solutions.
