Lucan-based ICT comapny, Nostra, an independent, announced 50 new jobs on Wednesday. The company was established by Laois natives, Kevin and Barry O’Loughlin along with Gary Byrne and Senan Finucane in 2006 and has grown rapidly in the last number of years. The business has grown from just four staff in 2006 to 75 people in 2016 with 50 new positions to be filled over the next three years.

Recruitment for the new positions will begin immediately and include roles for computer engineers and sales personnel who will be required to service recent client wins and support the growth of new international business. The company supports well-known brands including BoyleSports, Dawn Farm Foods and aerospace giant Avolon which now has a requirement for international ICT supported and managed by Nostra.

Nostra CEO Kevin O’Loughlin said: “We are really grateful for the support we received from Enterprise Ireland which has allowed us to grow and expand the company. Our international business has really taken off and the support from Enterprise Ireland has been a game changer for us. It has helped Nostra to take on new business and create new jobs. We are very focused on reaching our goals and are currently working on building our business in North America and Europe”.

As part of its five year plan, the company aims to expand to employ a total of 147 people by 2020. To meet this expansion, Nostra recently extended its headquarters and has just completed a full renovation and state-of-the-art 9,000 square foot facility which was unveiled today by the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Mary Mitchell, O’Connor.

“SME’s are the backbone of our economy and are creating jobs right across all regions of our country,” Mitchell O’Connor said. “They are filled with innovative, hardworking entrepreneurs. I am delighted that Nostra, an Enterprise Ireland supported company which started its life with just four people working out of what was essentially a shed in an industrial estate has now grown to be an international player on the world stage.”

The new look facility at Nostra’s headquarters in Lucan, Co. Dublin includes new office spaces, a 24-hour helpdesk, a state of the art IT Build Room, boardrooms, meeting rooms, a dedicated field and internal sales team area and a café.
