IDA Ireland Launches ‘The Landing Space’ in Sligo

IDA Ireland Launches ‘The Landing Space’ in Sligo

IDA Ireland, in partnership with IT Sligo and Sligo County Council, have officially opened a new fast landing property solution. The establishment of IDA Ireland’s first fast landing service at Embankment House, Sligo, to be known as ‘The Landing Space’, will provide an open plan, turnkey collaborative working environment for companies who wish to quickly and easily establish operations in the North West region. It is the latest strategic initiative by IDA Ireland to increase investments in regional locations by enhancing and highlighting the specific property attributes of individual regional urban centres.

Sligo is home to leading life science companies such as Phibro, Abbvie and Abbott as well as tech companies LiveTiles, Overstock and E3 Retail. These international brands help attract additional overseas companies to potentially locate to the Sligo area.

Attending the launch, Minister of State for Natural Resources, Community Affairs and Digital Development Seán Canney said: “Sligo has benefitted greatly in recent months from the arrival of global companies like Phibro, LiveTiles and E3 Retail. It’s proof that everything that global companies require to establish and scale up their operations can be found here – such as talent, services and infrastructure. The addition of this new fast landing space is another strong attractor, adding greatly to what Sligo has to offer. I congratulate all involved in developing this space. All of these developments also add to the work of the Atlantic Economic Corridor strategy as set out in the National Development Plan.”

IDA Ireland’s Executive Director Mary Buckley said: “This top quality, turn-key property adds significantly to the value proposition we can offer clients and will greatly assist our efforts to attract inward investment to Sligo.  The collaborative work of all local stakeholders represented here today, including IT Sligo and Sligo County Council, is really important and demonstrates that creating an attractive location for investment benefits greatly from a team approach.”

The availability of skilled workers and graduates in Sligo to service the North West’s growing international client base has greatly benefitted the region. Dr Brendan McCormack, President of IT Sligo, said: “IT Sligo is delighted to be partnering with the IDA and Sligo County Council in providing this new facility for Sligo-based companies. This initiative will add to our on-campus incubation facility offering, which currently houses over 30 companies, allowing us to build on our extensive suite of enterprise and entrepreneur supports. These new office facilities will provide a soft-landing base for companies establishing a permanent presence in Sligo.”

Gigabit Hub at the Landing Space
Siro and Vodafone are supporting The Landing Space with the provision of Gigabit connectivity, the most powerful broadband available in Ireland, as it becomes the latest participant in Vodafone and SIRO’s national Gigabit Hub Initiative, which offers a 1 Gigabit (1,000 Mbps or Megabits per second) broadband connection to qualifying business hubs in regional towns. Companies based in The Landing Space will benefit from the same level of broadband connectivity as available in leading international hubs such in locations like Tokyo and Hong Kong.
