Neopost today announced the creation of 100 jobs and an investment of €15m in a new operations centre in Citywest, Dublin.
Neopost is headquartered in France and employs over 6,000 people worldwide. The company supplies solutions for physical and digital communications management for large enterprises and SMEs, as well as shipping processes for supply-chain and e-commerce players.
The new centre will bring Neopost’s total employees in Ireland to almost 160 and will help manage 300,000 active customers across 13 European countries.
Neopost will recruit people with experience in management, finance, IT, telesales and administration over the next two years.
The company is also announcing a new joint venture with French mail services company, Esker, to establish Irish-based Neotouch Cloud Solutions Ltd, which will roll out services to Ireland next year.
Clem Garvey, chief operating officer Europe, APAC, Export, Neopost, says: “Dublin will be a very important site for us in our global operations and this announcement is a sign of our belief in Ireland as a great place to do business and to find some of the best talent in Europe.”
Garvey continues: “Neopost’s European operations are expanding and changing constantly and we require a skilled workforce to support those activities. With a multilingual and highly adaptable workforce, Ireland is abundant with talent – it’s little wonder it is on track to be Europe’s fastest-growing economy for the second year in a row. On top of that, with its ease of doing business and impressive track record in shared services centres, Ireland is the ideal location for our European Operations Centre.”
Ged Nash TD, Minister for Business and Employment, commented: “These are highly skilled jobs across a range of disciplines and are welcome news for Dublin and the wider region. Neopost is a dynamic company that is unafraid to innovate and adapt – and to help its clients evolve in a digital age. I wish Clem and his team continued success in their new centre of operations.”
Martin Shanahan, CEO, IDA Ireland, added: “Ireland is a great place to locate a European operations centre. Neopost has recognised the strength of the talent pool available here attracting skilled English-speaking and multilingual expertise to grow their business activities at the NeoCentre. Neopost have a long history in Ireland and I am delighted they are committing further to their operations here, leading their digital communications solutions in Ireland.”
